Saturday 27th February 2016
With love comes the courage to be yourself in The Danish Girl, coming to Blu-ray and DVD 9th May 2016, from Universal Pictures (UK). Inspired by the lives of Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener, the remarkable love story is "a cinematic landmark", according to Variety's Peter Debruge.
The Danish Girl is nominated for four Academy Awards® including Best Actor (Eddie Redmayne), Best Supporting Actress (Alicia Vikander), Best Costume Design (Paco Delgado), and Best Production Design (Production Designer, Eve Stewart; Set Decorator, Michael Standish).
Academy Award® winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) and Academy Award® nominee Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) star for Academy Award®-winning director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech and Les Misérables). In the 1920s, a strong and loving marriage evolves as Gerda Wegener (Vikander) supports Lili Elbe (Redmayne) during her journey as a transgender woman.
Through the other, each of them finds the courage to be who they are at heart. "Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander are sensational!" declares Access Hollywood's Scott Mantz, while Debruge of Variety raves, "Redmayne gives the greatest performance of his career."
The Danish Girl also stars Ben Whishaw (Skyfall), Sebastian Koch (Homeland), Amber Heard (Zombieland), and Matthias Schoenaerts (Far from the Madding Crowd).
