The Danish Girl >> Review and trailer

Image
Einar Wegener and his wife Gerda are artists. One day Gerda asks Einar to dress as Lily for a portrait she is making. They find it fun, and decide to further it by having Einar dress as Lily for a party - posing as his own twin sister.

But things take an unexpected turn when Einar starts enjoying being a transvestite - he develops a very strong feeling that he is indeed a woman. To the extent that he decides to get his sex changed - something that has never been done, yet.

What will become of the love and life of Einar and Gerda? Will Gerda sacrifice her husband for her love?

Rating: Green - an excellent movie based on real life events! Must watch!

PS: Like all movies based on real life, the facts may be more than a little twisted.
