The Danish Girl

Tom Hooper directs this biographical drama starring Eddie Redmayne as Danish artist, and one of the first recipients of gender reassignment surgery, Einar Wegener. While standing in as a female model for his artist wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander), Einar develops an attraction for a female physical appearance and begins living as a woman named Lili Elbe. However, as their relationship develops and Lili begins to identify more as a woman than his former sex and ultimately begins sexual reassignment surgery, their marriage comes under strain as Gerda realises that her husband is no longer the person she married. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Supporting Actress (Vikander) and Best Actor (Redmayne), Vikander winning for Best Supporting Actress.
