At first, the trailer of The Danish Girl seems like a good story between a husband and wife, but soon it turns out that it’s a story that not every body will be able to digest. In order to help people do that, the makers of The Danish Girl have created the film like a painting! The visuals are that good. The film stars The Theory of Everything famed Eddie Redmayne as transgender Lili Elbe, who underwent a sex change or gender reassignment surgery way back in 1930. The Danish Girl seems like another Oscar Award-winning performance by Redmayne, who took home the Best Actor Academy Award for The Theory of Everything.
The Danish Girl is the true story of Lili Elbe, who is a married man and in the course of posing for a painting as a woman, realises his true self and urge to be a woman. Shocked as she is, slowly the wife accepts him and he undergoes a sex change. Lili Elbe had two gender reassignment surgeries in 1930 and 1931, and succumbed to the second one where her body could not accept the changes to the reproductive system.
