The Danish Girl
Director Tom Hooper (Les Misérables) reteams with star Eddie Redmayne for this beautiful film. Redmayne turns in another award-worthy performance in this true story about painter Einar Wegener and his wife, Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander), a married couple living in Copenhagen, Denmark, in the 1920s. Their relationship is put to the test when Einar begins dressing as a woman named Lili and embracing his feelings that he's actually a woman. The film is gorgeously shot, the costumes are fantastic, and Redmayne and Vikander's onscreen chemistry is as lovely as it is heartbreaking.
