Oscars 2018: 'A Fantastic Woman' wins best foreign film

Oscars 2018: 'A Fantastic Woman' wins best foreign film

And yet for all its immediate social realism, this story is seeded through with splashes of fantasy and surrealism.

She was born and raised in Chile. "She was Marina!" he told EW in January.

Processing the shock and grief is quantum enough - the ugly, corrosive scorn she faces from his family as a trans-woman.

She made Academy Award history. Joining them were Larrain and his brother Juan de Dios Larrain who are producers with Lelio and Gonzalo Maza (who co-wrote the script). "I feel so, so happy", she said.

The movie was initially about a cisgender character; however, Lelio was inspired to change the story after he began working with Vega, who initially joined the movie as a LGBT advisor.


The groundbreaking moment was one of a few incredible moments for Vega last night. The 28-year-old actress is from San Miguel, Santiago, Chile and has lived in Chile her entire life, making her Oscars debut even more impressive and noteworthy.

Meanwhile the police suspect Orlando's death from an aneurysm may have involved drugs or foul play, and submit Marina to questioning and a humiliating physical exam.

Vega plays Marina, a waitress and singer in a relationship with an older, divorced man. "This is my personal choice and this is what constitutes my humanity". "A Fantastic Woman" is really fantastic, one of the best films of the year, and Vega's performance will most definitely move you.

This is achieved not only in the appearance of Orlando, but in all the dream sequences - some fueled by a kind of wild musical romanticism, others subtle but effective (as in a moment when a couple of workmen pass by Marina on the street, holding a giant mirror).

Marina's life was easy and happy while she had Orlando-a nice apartment and vehicle that belonged to him and which they shared. Marina loved Francesco and wants to say a final goodbye.
