Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. After celebrating Marina's birthday one evening, Orlando falls seriously ill. Marina rushes him to the emergency room, but he passes away just after arriving at the hospital. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly Marina is treated with suspicion. So Marina is forced to confront his family and society... She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now - a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman.

"Shocking and enraging, funny and surreal, rapturous and restorative, this is a film of startling intensity and sinuous mood shifts wrapped in a rock-solid coherence of vision."
David Rooney - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"It's how the film handles grief and alienation which makes Marina's story so compelling. "
Patrick Gamble - CINEVUE

"Psychologically astute and socially aware as the film is, it is also infused with mystery and melodrama, with bright colors and emotional shadows."
A.O. Scott - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"The superb Vega’s steady, liquid, fathomless gaze is so direct that we come to understand that behind it, behind the barricade of defenses she’s built up against an unfriendly world, she is no enigma at all: she is completely known to herself."
Jessica Kiang - THE PLAYLIST

"A Fantastic Woman shows that the obvious insults a trans person may endure will, of course, weigh on the psyche, but the death by a thousand well-meaning cuts hurts as well."
April Wolfe - VILLAGE VOICE
