After massive critical success in his turn as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, actor Eddie Redmayne is set to lead another adaptation this year. In The Danish Girl, based on the book of the same name by David Ebershoff, Redmayne portrays transgender artist Lili Elbe.
The latest trailer for the film showcases the developing relationship between Elbe and her wife, played by Alicia Vikander (of Ex Machina fame), and the pivotal moment when Elbe decides to transition. The film, directed by Academy Award-winner Tom Hooper (Les Miserables), will debut at the Venice Film Festival this week. On November 27, it will get a limited release in New York and Los Angeles, and release nationwide later in the year.
