Here is Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory Of Everything) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) in the official trailer for Focus Features’ The Danish Girl. From Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper (Les Misérables) and based on the book by David Ebershoff, with screenplay by Lucinda Coxon. The Danish Girl will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and also is slated for Toronto, with Focus releasing the transgender love story in New York and Los Angeles on November 27, and in additional cities in December.
The film stars Redmayne as artist Lili Elbe, born Einar Wegener, and Vokander as Elbe’s wife, Gerda, also an artist. Their story changes dramatically after a scene in which Gerda has her husband pose with a dress for a portrait she’s working on. Through the remarkable and dangerous transition from Einar to Lili, the love between the couple grows even as Lili’s journey take them into uncharted territory.
The cast includes Ben Whishaw, Sebastian Koch, Amber Heard and Matthias Schoenaerts.
