Daniela Vega is a knockout as a trans woman who suffers outrageous indignities after the death of her older boyfriend.

Even those familiar with the extent to which trans women are particularly vulnerable will be shocked by some of the details: a humiliating examination by police officers who assume shes a prostitute, a harrowing scene of terror at the hands of her boyfriends macho family members.

The filmmaking is expert. Watch how Lelio uses mirrors and windows, especially in the moments just after the aforementioned family attack.
