The Danish Girl

The Danish Girl

Find the courage to be yourself.
  • Mirror, mirror, on the wall...

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 favour 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. With that, one of the most passionate and unusual love stories of the twentieth century begins.
