The whole film is wonderful. I will watch over and over again.
The remarkable love story inspired by the lives of Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener (portrayed by Academy Award® winner Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander), directed by Academy Award® winner Tom Hooper. Lili and Gerda's marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili's journey as a transgender woman.
Really enjoyed this film - based on a true story, it is great!
What a fantastic film. very moving and heartfelt. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a very emotional film and well acted. I agree with some of the comments made that I felt more sorry for Girder than for Lilly the exasperated wife. The highlight of the film for me was the line "I just want my husband... Can you give me that? It's not all about you." This maybe a long film and you have to pase yourself through it. But definitely worth the watch.
This is a great movie. What more can I say.....
This was my favourite line in the movie, said to Lily by her exasperated wife.
I’m all for stories that raise these kind of issues, but this one (in my opinion) portrayed the transgender protagonist as a self-obsessed, unreasonable person, happy to lean on others for support but unwilling to make any concessions in return. Since it’s widely established that this is (while loosely based on a few real people, maybe) essentially a work of fiction, I have to question the value and motives of such a portrayal.
Frankly the emotions I felt during the climax of the movie were of admiration and sympathy for Lily’s wife more than for Lily.
What a brilliant film! Acting is superb and the story is just utterly beautiful! Definitely worth a watch!
Why do you not make it available to rent!!!!???
If your looking for a slow movie to start your weekend, this is the one. Very enjoyable.
Beautifully acted,well made and well told film. I really enjoyed it , such a inspiring but tragic story.
