A Fantastic Woman in Birmingham

A Fantastic Woman Mac Birmingham

Chilean director Sebastián Lelio (Gloria) returns with a ground-breaking, captivating and deeply humane story about a trans woman’s fight for acceptance. Anchored by a powerhouse central performance from rising star Daniela Vega, this Oscar-winning film is an urgent call for compassion towards a community that faces bigotry and hostility on a daily basis.

Met with suspicion from the police and contempt from her lover’s relatives, Marina finds herself placed under intense scrutiny, with no regard for her privacy, or her grief. As tensions rise between Marina and Orlando’s family, she is evicted from their shared home and banned from attending his funeral. But faced with the threat of losing everything, Marina finds the strength to fight back.
