You and a guest are invited to a special advance free screening of A Fantastic Woman, nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Film, at the AMC Boston Common on Wednesday, February 21 at 7:30pm.
“Daniela Vega, the first trans actress to lead a major Oscar-nominated film is a force of nature: tender, furious, indomitable.” – Entertainment Weekly
After the sudden death of her partner, Orlando, Marina (Daniela Vega), a young trans woman, is treated with suspicion by Orlando’s family, doctors, and the local police. Orlando’s ex-wife forbids Marina from attending the funeral, and Orlando’s son threatens to throw Marina out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Orlando’s family can only see Marina’s gender identity as an aberration, a perversion. Marina simply wants to grieve the man she loved and who loved her back. Doing so will require all of Marina’s strength and resilience.
