Oscar front-runner 'Fantastic Woman' tells an illuminating transgender story | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

The Spanish-language movie — nominated for the best-foreign-language film Academy Award — is a hypnotic, heart-rending meditation on grief and otherness, following a young transgender waitress named Marina (trans actress Daniela Vega) who attempts to pick up the pieces of her shattered life after the sudden death of her much older partner, Orlando (Francisco Reyes). But her mourning is hindered by Orlando's estranged family, who passive aggressively — then violently — try to bar her from his funeral because she's trans.

The 20 Best Movie Performances of 2017: A Year of Black, Gay, and Trans Excellence

The 20 Best Movie Performances of 2017: A Year of Black, Gay, and Trans Excellence | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

2017 flourished with performances that highlighted what it means to to be a gay man, a trans woman, a black woman, an immigrant who specializes in holistic medicine, an HIV-positive activist, a struggling mother or even a fallen Valkyrie. This week, a Los Angeles Times cover celebrating actresses calling for “a change in the way many stories are told” featured only white actresses on the cover: Margot Robbie, Diane Kruger, Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening, Kate Winslet, and Jessica Chastain. When called out on it, Chastain responded, “It’s a sad look that there’s no WOC in this pic of us promoting our female lead films. The industry needs to become more inclusive in its storytelling.”

Why 2017 was a game-changing year for LGBT cinema

Why 2017 was a game-changing year for LGBT cinema | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

While a few high-profile films have broken the mould of the type-cast or side-lined LGBT character in recent decades, such as Ang Lee’s 2005 Brokeback Mountain or Todd Haynes’s 2015 Carol, equality of LGBT representation in cinema still seems some way off: a US study on the top 100 films of 2016 showed only 1.1 per cent of speaking characters were gay, lesbian or bisexual, no speaking character was identified as transgender, and only one film featured a gay protagonist. That film was Moonlight.
