Those with an eye on the imminent awards season would be wise to learn Daniela Vega’s name.

The Chliean trans actor plays the title role in filmmaker Sebastián Lelio’s “A Fantastic Woman” (“Una Mujer Fantástica”), playing a woman forced to fight against society and the family of her older lover following his sudden death.

Sony Pictures Classics has given the film a prime Nov. 17 theatrical release after a warm reception at the Berlin International Film Festival, as well as the currently-underway Toronto International Film Festival. Consider it a contender for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Check out the beautiful new trailer:
