Next Feature – The Danish Girl – 8pm, Monday 18th July

The Danish Girl is a 2015 British-American biographical romantic drama film directed by Tom Hooper, based on the 2000 fictional novel of the same name by David Ebershoff and loosely inspired by the lives of Danish painters Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. The film stars Eddie Redmayne as Elbe, one of the first known recipients of sex change surgery, Alicia Vikander as Wegener, Matthias Schoenaerts as Hans Axgil, and Ben Whishaw as Henrik.

The film received some criticism for its inaccurate portrayal of historical events, but Redmayne and Vikander’s performances received widespread acclaim and nominations for all of the major acting awards. Vikander won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and Redmayne was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor.
