Eddie Redmayne is fresh from winning an Academy Award for The Theory of Everything, where he portrayed a much younger Stephen Hawking. Post that remarkable win, what has he been busy with? You will surprise yourself if you think any kind of film has managed to grab his attention, high up on that mantle, but a good subject has, though – that of a crossdressing woman.
Sensational art and medieval Europe interlink as a character emerges from the shadows, who has gone thgorugh multiple sex-surgeries, to settle on her identity, for The Danish Girl. From 1930 onwards she went through these experimental surgeries to shift her sex and fastly changes her name to Lili Elbe.
