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 Kings Speech, Les Misrables). 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. 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 societys disapproval. They leave their homeland for the more open-minded world of Paris. There, it is Gerdas career that continues to flourish. The couples 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.

This Movie is bringing the difficulty and the fight of one who is different ,of one who feels different, on screen. I went in the movie 2 times and would go a 3rd time. The outstanding acters the outstanding cast.. Makes this movie one of the best i ever saw so far. Of course, in india theire was some surprise and unfortunatly some shame in seeing some scences also involving sexuality and the transformation. Never the less This movie is not only for transgender , its for all of us. Do really belive in what the society tells us to be? Or are we actually in prision with the life we lead? Do we have the strenth to break free? Dare the impossible, to actually be ourself!?? Yes, we have, thats why u have to watch this movie!!

A must watch. Excellent direction and acting. The casting couldnt have been better. The fact that the subject was existent in that era, and a person came out aloud to such extent, is eyeopening to todays society and generation.
