Winner of the 2018 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, as well as 26 other awards, this film is a dazzling, poetic, compelling tale of a transgender woman, part waitress, part singer, impacted by the sudden death of her cherished male lover. Their unconventional relationship, his family’s denial of her right to mourn him, questions about her potential involvement in his death, unexpected hatred and intolerance, her attempts to cope… all combine to make this a powerful and moving experience.
