U.S. Trailer for ‘A Fantastic Woman’ Previews Trans Actress Daniela Vega’s Breakthrough Performance

Written by on September 6, 2017 


There most be something in the water in Chile, at least when it pertains to the prolific nature of its emerging directors. Following Pablo Larraín’s one-two-three punch of The Club, Neruda, and Jackie last year, Sebastián Lelio’s has two high-profile films arriving this fall. Along with the TIFF premiere of his lesbian drama Disobedience starring Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz, his Berlinale success A Fantastic Woman will hit theaters this fall and now the U.S. trailer has arrived.

“Chilean director Sebastián Lelio’s follow-up to his 2013 hit Gloria is a dazzling companion piece that once again focuses on a woman’s resilience in a world where what doesn’t kill you doesn’t necessarily make you stronger. Timely issues of transgender rights both in Latin and North America help make A Fantastic Woman a bolder, brasher film, fiery in comparison with Gloria’s relatively tenderness, but anchored once more by a stellar central performance by trans actress Daniela Vega,” we said in our review.

See the trailer below via Vulture.


A Fantastic Woman opens later this year via Sony Classics.
