Today, the trailer for The Danish Girl starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander was released. The movie is based on transgender pioneer Lili Elbe, the first person to ever undergo male-to-female sex reassignment surgery. Take a look:
Can you say Best Oscar Nomination 2016? This movie has it written all over it. Based on a true story, overcoming hardships, finding yourself, with a major actor transformation. It worked out really well for Jared Leto. Plus, Redmayne is channeling his inner Evil Stepmother a-la Cate Blanchett. WORKING. IT.
I loved Redmayne in The Theory of Everything and Vikander in both Ex Machina and Testament of Youth. Both super talented actors who put all of themselves into their roles. I can’t wait to see this and cry my eyes out.
The Danish Girl hits theaters November 27th. (Same week as Victor Frankenstein. What a week for movies!).
