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.

    God, I cried the entire movie. I feel so sad for transgender people, it must be so hard to live in a body we don't belong in. And as if that wasn't enough to even be forced to hide in a society that doesn't accept them for feeling like that (something they can't control!). But what scares me the most is that some would take the unbearable pain of a sex operation in order to feel integrity... How uncomfortable do you have to be? Jeez, what a world we live in.

    Trailers are way too long nowadays. Show a sense of the film and that's it. Don't give away the whole movie. Glad I didn't watch this until after I had seen the movie.
