The just winner of Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars is Chilean director Sebastián Lelio’s (Gloria) luminous portrait of an isolated woman amid the everyday obstacles of transgender existence. Marina (Daniela Vega), a young Santiago waitress and aspiring singer, is deeply in love with Orlando. But when he suffers an aneurysm, she – by virtue of her gender identity – is treated with suspicion, with everyone from doctors and Orlando’s family to the police seeing not a grieving woman, but an aberration. Unrecognised or repudiated by society and with her way of life under threat, Marina must utilise all of her resources to proceed.
