Directed by Sebastián Lelio | 2017

With Daniela Vega, Luis Gnecco, Francisco Reyes

“It may be a timely film, but it is its timelessness, as well as its depths of compassion, that qualify it as a great one.”
—The Guardian

Marina, a young waitress and aspiring singer, and Orlando, who is 20 years older than her, are in love and planning for the future. After celebrating Marina’s birthday one evening, Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies soon after being rushed to the hospital. Unable to mourn her lover, Marina, who is trans, is treated with suspicion and distrust by Orlando’s doctors and family. His ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral and his son threatens to throw Marina out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Chilean director Sebastián Lelio’s (Gloria) powerful new film paints a portrait of a woman struggling for the right to be herself, as she battles the very same forces that she spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now: a complex, strong, forthright, and fantastic woman.
