The Danish Girl

Find the courage to be yourself.


The Danish Girl
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.

Jim Judy quote iconThankfully, Hooper keeps everything operating on a high level. So much so that the film could very well land a plethora of award nominations, not only for the acting, direction and writing, but also on the technical side as the production design, costuming and cinematography are gorgeous to behold.
