Synopsis


The Danish Girl
After standing in as a female model for a painting by his wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander), Danish artist Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne) becomes enamored with his feminine identity and begins living as a woman named Lili Elbe. Although their marriage becomes strained, Gerda stands by Lili as she explores her true self and eventually undergoes one of the world's first gender-reassignment surgeries in the 1930s. This touching biopic was adapted from David Ebershoff's book of the same name, and helmed by director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech). ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

    The Danish Girl, based on a true story, is a ravishing love story of self discovery. Yet with all the great costume and set design and an incredible performance by Eddie Redmyne, it's lead actress Alicia Vakander is the show stealer! Alicia's heartbreaking journey to stand by the love of her life and truly accept and assist her husbands transformation is one of the most endearing yet painful and emotional performances I've witnessed in quite some time! It's no wonder she won her Academy Award for this performance.

    This movie turned out to be great. Mind you it's not for narrow minded people or young children but it's a unique view of a married mans life during his rise from interest in being a woman on his way to actually becoming one. All of that goes on well before people were anywhere near our current level of acceptance of transgender now a days. If your into movies that push the boundaries and have complicated emotions this might be for you.

    ALICIA VIKANDER IS ONE OF THE FINEST ACTORS CURRENTLY WORKING IN FILMS. SHE IS MY VERY FAVOTIRE ACTOR RIGHT NOW AND WON AN ACADEMY AWARD FOR HER PERFORMANCE IN THIS FILM. "THE DANISH GIRL" WAS THE BEST FILM OF 2015: INCREDIBLE SET DESIGN AND COSTUMES, SUPERB ACTING, DIRECTING AND SCREENWRITING AND VERY EUROPEAN LOCATIONS. EDDIE REDMAYNE GIVES ANOTHER GREAT PERFORMANCE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    The Danish Girl is a beautiful period film based on a true story: the first trans male to female operation in history. The movie has stunning costumes, sets, gorgeous cinematography, and an enriching score. The acting is top notch. The Danish Girl had many award nominations and wins during it's theatrical release.

    Heartfelt, controversial, emotionally engaging film about a male who transitions to a woman. That this true story takes place nearly a century ago is a remarkable testament to the human spirits determination to rise above the mores and prejudices of the day. Like all good films, our empathy is engaged toward the characters. In this case a husband and wife whose lives are changed forever.

    Didn't see this until I picked up the BluRay at Best Buy. I can see why this film piled up the nominations. It's VERY well written and VERY well acted. But it's not for every taste, and it's a bit predictable in places. Still, Definitely worth a look. Looks great on Blu Ray, good set of special features if you want to dig more deeply into the story that inspired this film.

    The Danish Girl tells the story of the 1st man who did whatever it take to feel himself. Trap inside a mans body for so long but being Lili his entire life. This Film its hard broking and sad, because you can see how society hasn't evolved since the 1st man who change his "body" to a women.

    THE CAST SYSTEM OF PEDIGREE AND FAMILY STANDING SHOWS IT'S UGLY DEMEANOR. A LOVE STORY BEAUTIFUL EXECUTED, WHEN THE MAIN CHARACTER NATASHA TRIES TO FIND LOVE AND PURPOSE IN LIFE. ALL THE ACTORS HAVE TO GO THROUGH THEIR OWN DIFFICULT TIMES TO FIND THEIR WAY. GREAT CLASSIC RE-CREATION.
