The Danish Girl follows the story of Lili Elbe, the first person ever to receive gender reassignment surgery. Eddie Redmayne gives a truly captivating performance as Einar/Lili, and Alicia Vikander who plays wife Gerda is amazing. It takes your emotions on a wild adventure, and it is shot spectacularly . The story has been simplified and dramatized for the film, but its 120 minutes packed full of heart-wrenching beauty. Definitely worth watching if you haven’t seen it already.
