Hollywood star Eddie Redmayne looks amazing in the brand new trailer that has been released for his forthcoming film Danish Girl.
Set in the 1920s and based on a true story, the movie is a love story about how Einar’s artist wife Gerda Waud persuaded Einar to pose for her in women’s clothes after one of her models failed to show. Later known as Lili Elbe, he then underwent a series of experimental operations in Germany to confirm her sex as female and live as her true authentic self in the 1930s.
Redmayne has revealed that he had spoken to members of the trans community to research the role and added,
“I think it’s the most sensitive role I have ever played. The danger of surgery was so extreme then, and it was such a brave thing that Einar did.”
‘The Danish Girl’ is set for a cinema release at the end of this year, and in time for maybe a second Oscar Nomination for one of our favorite actors.
