Marina is who she is, no apologies, she wants no trouble. Marina just wants respect.  In the evening she sings in a nightclub, during the day she’s a waitress. She’s in a relationship with an older man who suddenly dies.  The authorities are suspicious, Orlando’s family is suspicious, and prejudice from both is paramount. Director Sebastian Lelio has made a film with a powerful message that does not preach to the audience. Perhaps we all might look at people we don’t understand with a kinder heart. Emerging actress Daniela Vega is a powerhouse.

“Fantastic is one word for it, another would be outstanding” Detroit News

“A gentle heart-wrenching, quietly furious movie” Boston Globe

“But at its core, A Fantastic Woman is the story of genuine love, something that requires no definition” The Toronto Star
