A beautiful film based on the true story of one of the world's first people to get sex-reassignment surgery.

Eddie Redmayne was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Lili Elbe in this film that tells the story of Elbe's transition from man to woman in late-1920s Copenhagen and Paris. The movie eloquently offers three emotional perspectives – that of a man becoming a woman; of a passionate marriage between man and woman evolving to the caring friendship of two women; and the story of a woman losing her husband to a new persona.
