From Chilean director Sebastián Lelio, whose 2013 film GLORIA provided an indelible portrait of a woman adrift, comes this incisive character study of a different nature. Marina (Daniela Vega), the transgender heroine of A FANTASTIC WOMAN is beautiful, enigmatic, and plunged into a precarious situation after her boyfriend dies unexpectedly in her company. Making subtle nods toward Almodóvar and Fassbinder, Lelio suffuses his scenes with an air of subversive noir, emphasizing Marina's quest to prove she is not the femme fatale her adversaries make her out to be. A FANTASTIC WOMAN is an alluring exercise in style, a smart spin on the genre, and a much-needed entry into the category of films that move trans characters from the margins to the spotlight.

NYT Critic’s Pick: “The title of Sebastián Lelio's new film might seem a bit on the nose. It's a fantastic movie. Daniela Vega, the star, is fantastic in it. Quote me in the ads, with exclamation points if you must...Almodóvarian and Buñuelian grace notes adorn its matter-of-fact melody, and its surface modesty camouflages an unruly, extravagant spirit. You may not realize until the very end that you have been gazing at the portrait of an artist in the throes of self-creation.” — A.O. Scott, New York Times
