Sometimes one sits to watch a movie and becomes totally riveted to the screen unaware of time and place. The Danish Girl was such a movie for me.
This film is a work of art in all areas. The photography is beautiful, acting superb by all the actors and a controversial subject handled with respect and dignity.
I could not help but wonder if it is because it is Christmas week that the theater had fewer than a dozen people in attendance or if it was the subject of the film that kept people away. This is a tender portrayal of a young man and his struggle and painful journey of embracing the realization that he is a woman trapped in a man’s body.
Bravos to actors Eddie Redmayne, Alicia Vikander, Matthias Schoenaerts and director Lasse Hallstrom.
If for no other reason, this film should be seen just for the incredible art piece that it is.
