        I really didn’t like this. Good acting, but it just made me angry. Lili seemed like a very selfish person, while Gerda was extremely patient and selfless.

        I enjoyed 'The Danish Girl' - the wife's acceptance of her husband's search for his identity and truth was heartwarming, the acting from Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander was great, and I really liked the cinematography as well - there were so many great shots. I wasn't familiar with Elbe or Wegener's paintings, but enjoyed looking them up, and found something profoundly appropriate to Elbe's own story in the trees she painted before giving up her art.

        Lili Elbe becomes the first transgender person to undergo sex reassignment surgery, which shakes her marriage to Gerda Wegener. Despite the many talents of Eddie Redmayne, fresh off his Oscar win as Stephen Hawking, Alicia Vikander is the reason to watch this film. She gives a nuanced, remarkable performance, alternately loving Einar unconditionally, then realizing that conditions are a part of life and love. The rest of the plot doesn't do a lot. Most of the plot events are predictable and aren't all that incredibly rendered. Overall, Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting Actress, but she's really a co-protagonist, carrying this film from beginning to end.

        The Danish Girl succeeds at being a well-made bio pic with a heart, but its hard to shake the feeling that Lili is more a vessel used to display the first transgender rather than a fully fleshed out human. Alicia Vikanker's performance is more lived in and thus resonates more. This detracts from the impact of the shiny film. Tom Hooper has mastered elegant period films, but here the film could've benefited by being a bit unsafe. Nothing that happens in The Danish Girl is unpredictable. The film takes a very safe and by the course approach which produces solid but unremarkable results. Rating: 62
