The Danish Girl (Tom Hooper – 2015) B+

This a film about the first person who underwent gender reassignment surgery. That would be the Danish artist Einar Wegener / Lili Elbe played very effectively by Eddie Redmayne. What is most interesting about Tom Hooper’s film, other than the beautiful photography, is the relationship between Einar and his wife Gerda (also a very good performance by Alicia Vikander). Seeing how that evolves and changes as Einar changes is sad and sweet.
