A Fantastic Woman

A movie about a Chilean woman whose partner dies suddenly and who is forbidden from his funeral because his first family are a bunch of transphobic cunts. This movie is visually beautiful and the music is great. One thing I liked is that Marina is full of a quiet inner strength. She is neither a fragile, shattering victim, nor the snap-back cutting queer trope that is found so entertaining. She is simply a woman trying to survive her pain with as much dignity as she can muster. Good film.
