Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne stars in an extraordinary and moving true-life love story. In 1920s Copenhagen, bohemian artist Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) asks her husband Einar (Eddie Redmayne) to stand in for an absent female model. The experience of putting on women's clothes fulfils something deep within him, and Gerda's portraits quickly become a sensation among the unwitting public. With his wife's support and encouragement, Einar creates a female persona called Lili Elbe and begins living as a woman. But the couple's lives become complicated when Lili attracts male attention and Einar realises that he needs to take things further. Following his Oscar winning triumph as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne undergoes another astonishing transformation in this profoundly touching true story of one of the first recipients of gender reassignment surgery. It's magnificently and tastefully staged by Tom Hooper, Oscar-winning director of The King's Speech, who previously directed Redmayne in Les Miserables.
