Directed by Sebastián Lelio (Chile, 2017, 104 min.). Digital.
Sebastián Lelio’s dazzling Oscar-winner tells the story of Marina (Daniela Vega), a transgender woman, and her boyfriend Orlando (Francisco Reyes), who falls gravely ill and dies. Instead of being allowed to mourn her lover in peace, Marina is treated with suspicion by doctors and Orlando’s family. A detective begins to investigate Marina to see if she was involved in his death, and Orlando’s ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral. In spite of opposition on all sides, and the weight of her own grief, this fantastic woman fights for her right to mourn her beloved.
