N.Y. Times critics pick
“The title of Sebastián Lelio’s new film might seem a bit on the nose. It’s a fantastic movie. Daniela Vega, the star, is fantastic in it…..Like the heroine of Mr. Lelio’s previous film, GLORIA, Marina insists on her own dignity — her basic rights to respect, safety and the pursuit of pleasure — in the face of condescension, indifference and contempt. Their situations are not identical….But they both rebel against a stubbornly patriarchal society that pushes them to the margins and expects them to be content with a half-invisible, second-class status.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
“In this exquisitely compassionate portrait of a trans woman whose mourning for a lost lover is obstructed at every turn by individual and institutional prejudice, Lelio has crafted perhaps the most resonant and empathetic screen testament to the everyday obstacles of transgender existence.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
“Shocking and enraging, funny and surreal, rapturous and restorative, this is a film of startling intensity and sinuous mood shifts wrapped in a rock-solid coherence of vision.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
Language: Spanish (English subtitles)
Rated R for language, sexual content, nudity and a disturbing assault.
