Inspired by the true story of Danish artists Einar Wegener and his wife Gerda, this tender portrait of a marriage asks: What do you do when someone you love wants to change? It starts with a question, a simple favor asked of a husband by his wife on an afternoon chilled by the Baltic wind while both are painting in their studio. Her portrait model has canceled, and would he mind slipping into a pair of women’s shoes and stockings for a few moments so she can finish the painting on time. “Of course,” he answers. “Anything at all.” With that, one of the most passionate and unusual love stories of the twentieth century begins.

"Eddie Redmayne has triumphed again with another remarkable performance as one of the world's first transsexuals"
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Tom Hooper proves he's capable of making a movie that's both steeped in awards-season prestige and in possession of a pulse."
- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"[A] beautiful, humane and moving biopic."
- Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
"You can't take your eyes off Redmayne as a pioneer in gender reassignment surgery. And Vikander does wonders as a wife who stands by her woman."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Destined to be the year's most talked-about arthouse phenomenon."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"Though much of the acting attention in Danish Girl will understandably go to Redmayne, Vikander's position as the audience surrogate plus her energy and passion as Gerda, a woman facing an exceptional challenge to her love of her husband, is more than essential."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
