“I believe I am a woman”
Last week we saw the first image of Eddie Redmayne as Lili Elba in The Danish Girl. Today we are getting our first look at the extraordinary trailer and it’s clear this is no ordinary film. Redmayne and costar Alicia Vikander under Tom Hooper’s direction are telling a transformative tale and telling it with enormous understanding, depth and sensitivity. Ben Whishaw, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Amber Heard also star. Lucinda Coxon wrote the screenplay adaptation of David Ebershoff’s novel based on the true story about the first person to undergo transgender surgery. It’s a painful and heartbreaking process.
