The Danish Girl


I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of The Danish Girl for a while now. Not only was it an incredible story with my favourite actor in, it also had a beautiful trailer. The film itself didn’t disappoint, I absolutely fell in love with it and despite all the criticism Eddie Redmayne was phonomenal. I cried three times while watching, it’s just so beautifully done.

I can understand that some people feel upset that  a cis actor was chosen but I don’t think this is because the director and casting director was an awful person. I honestly think that this is to educate people. Take an actor they absolutely adore, a good one, and they will be more accepting, it will ease people into it. Redmayne is a relatable person and by extension, hopefully, more people will engage with the story and with the Trans community. I honestly don’t think any of this was done with malice or hurt. If they were so anti-trans then why would they create the film?

It’s honestly so beautiful and the two leads worked together so well to tell a story that I am glad has has been told. Lily was an incredible person with a story that needed to be told and I can’t wait to read her own words (which you actually can!).

It’s definitely a must watch and if it wins no awards this season then we need to look at who’s judging.

Let me know what you think!
