Watched the "The Danish Girl", Drama of Transgender Life
Got the chance to watch “The Danish Girl” which is about a married couple
Gerda Wegener (played by Alicia Vikander) and Einar Wegener / Lili Elbe (played by Eddie Redmayne), and it's a very sad story.
Einar and Gerda are both talented artist in Copenhagen back in 1926. When a model back out for a portrait, Einar in for her and he wore stockings and a dress. The even affect Einar emotionally, shown through his face. It expose him to his real passion. His wife caught him wearing her nightgown underneath his male clothing, and Einar begins to embrace being a woman. Gerda’s story is heartbreaking, she sticks with her husband despite of that. It's all about a struggling marriage rocked by his husband transformation.
The “The Danish Girl” is Tom Hooper’s new film and it embraces the LGBT community. The film boast fine camerawork, and largely good writing.
The story is based on David Ebershoff’s novel of the same name.
