"A groundbreaking tale of a transgender journey, but it's also a beautiful and poignant love story that transcends stereotypes of gender, sexuality and romance."

The Danish Girl is the remarkable love story inspired by the lives of Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener, portrayed in the film respectively by Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), directed by Academy Award winner Tom Hooper (The King's Speech, Les Miserables).
"What Hooper has crafted is a work of probing intelligence and passionate heart."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
In 1926 in Copenhagen, artist Einar Wegener is married to Gerda Wegener and is revered for landscape paintings. Gerda is also an artist, less renowned but steadily working as a portraitist of prominent citizens. Theirs is a strong and loving marriage, yet personal and professional epiphanies have eluded them both.
"Eddie Redmayne Gives the Performance of the Year in 'The Danish Girl'."
- Rex Reed, New York Observer
That all begins to change one day when, on deadline for a portrait, Gerda asks her husband to fill in for a model by putting on a dress so that she can finish the painting. The experience is transformative, as Einar soon realizes that being Lili is an expression of her truest self, and she begins living her life as a woman. Gerda unexpectedly finds that she has a new muse, and renewed creative ferment. But the couple soon brush up against society’s disapproval.
"One of the year's finest films."
- Sara Stewart, New York Post
They leave their homeland for the more open-minded world of Paris. There, it is Gerda’s career that continues to flourish. The couple’s marriage evolves – and not without strain. But again and again Gerda supports Lili during her journey as a transgender woman. Through the other, each of them finds the courage to be who they are at heart.
"Watching Redmayne’s character blossom into her true self is remarkable."
- Brian Truitt, USA Today
