Description Copenhagen, 1926. Danish artist, Gerda Wegener, painted her own husband, Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), as a lady in her painting. When the painting gained popularity, Einar started to change his appearance into a female appearance and named himself Lili Elbe. With his feminism passion and Gerda's support, Einar - or Elbe - attempted one of the first male-to-female sex reassignment surgery, a decision that turned into a massive change for their marriage, that Gerda realized her own husband is no longer a man or the person she married before. A childhood friend of Einar, art-dealer Hans Axgil (Matthias Schoenaerts), shows up and starts a complex love triangle with the couple.

    Looks like more of the same... Hollywood recognizing the power of suggestion on the young (the raping of innocents) and the celebration of sickness. You're being conditioned! WAKE UP!!

    I have no knowledge of this matter regarding transgender, but if it's really mental illness yet they love living the lifestyle and don't want to be cured (if there is it), how does it bother some people to stick their noses into other people's business, what right do they have?

    Eddie was great, but honestly, Alicia stole the show for me. The entire time you could see how heartbroken Gerda was, yet she still did all she could to support the person she loved, even if it meant her own loss and pain.
