About the Film
This film was honored with the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film this year. It is an intimate exploration of female solitude, sexuality, and resilience, this time built around a transgender singer. Marina and Orlando, an older man, are in love and planning for the future. After Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, Marina is forced to confront his family and society, and to fight again to show them who she is: a complex, strong, forthright, fantastic woman.
