The Danish Girl is inspired by the story of Lili Elbe, portrayed by Eddie Redmayne, and shows Elbe’s struggling personal life before transitioning from a man to a woman in 1930. I thought this film was very good, and featured strong performances from all cast members, most notably Alicia Vikander, who picked up an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. For a subject that gets a lot of media coverage these days, I thought it was interesting to see a film about a transgender pioneer and I think it was pulled off in a very respectful way.
