Since the trailer of the biopic was dropped, Eddie Redmayne is getting accolades for his portrayal as artist Einar Wegener who transitions to Lili Elbe, and one of the first people known to undergo gender reassignment surgery.
The Danish Girl was recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival and Eddie Redmayne has started creating Oscar buzz for his impressive and heart touching performance.

Directed by Tom Hooper (The King's Speech, Les Misérables), the movie also stars Alicia Vikander as Lili's wife. The Danish Girl tells the story of one of the world's first male-to-female gender-reassignment operations, and even though it is set in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the movie's trailer wins our hearts!
It shows Lili's journey to become her true self after a game turns life changing, and the adversity she faced along the way when trans-gender acceptance is at the forefront of our culture.
Other Oscar contenders in 2015, following their debuts on the film festival are Steve Jobs by Danny Boyle and Macbeth.
