Marguerite, South Africa. 29 November 2016
This is an engrossing film, based on the short life of trans-sexual Danish painter Einar Wegener who, under the pseudonym Lili Elbe, lived as a woman with his wife, until he underwent one of the first recorded "sex-change" operations in Germany, and was then legally recognised as a woman. BAFTA, Golden Globe & Oscar nominee Eddie Redmayne gives a marvellous performance as Einar/Lili, complemented & strengthened by the Oscar winning performance of Alicia Vikander as his/her wife. The sensitivity that Redmayne & Vikander bring to the screen is extremely moving. One can only guess at the heartache that their true-life characters must have experienced and the bravery with which they confronted the experimental surgery that eventually cost Lili her life. This film is a must-see.
