The Danish Girl (2015)

UK/US/Belgium 119m, Colour
Director: Tom Hooper; Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Alicia Vikander, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ben Whishaw, Sebastian Koch, Amber Heard

TheDanishGirlA fascinating biographical drama based on David Ebershoff’s 2000 novel of the same name that is loosely based on the lives of two early 20th century Danish painters, Lili Elbe / Einar Wegener and Gerda Wegener. As Lili / Einer, Redmayne provides a masterful performance as the earliest known recipient of a sex reassignment in what becomes a tragic love story. Despite the historical inaccuracies, The Danish Girl is a beautifully made film that tells not only Lili’s story, but the impact it has on Gerda, whose angst is balanced by love and support for her partner (Klaus Ming January 2016).
