Angelika New York: Q&A with Director Sebastián Lelio Sunday 2/4 following the 5:20pm show

Oscar winner: Best Foreign Language Film

Golden Globe nominee: Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language


Director Sebastián Lelio's Academy Award winning A FANTASTIC WOMAN is being heralded as "ravishing" by the Hollywood Reporter. Waitress/singer Marina's (Daniela Vega) world is shaken when Orlando suddenly falls ill and passes away. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, Marina is treated with suspicion and, as a transgender woman, is met with harsh judgment and discrimination by Orlando's family. The struggles she faces in the aftermath of her lover's death become a microcosm for her life, as she battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting in order to become the woman she is - a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman.
