Eddie Redmayne Stuns In New ‘Danish Girl’ Posters
Academy Award winning actor Eddie Redmayne has a stunning transformation in new posters for the film The Danish Girl.
Redmayne plays Lili Elbe in the film based on the 2000 novel by David Ebershoff and directed by Tom Hooper. Elbe is the first person to receive gender reassignment surgery in the 1920s.
The Danish Girl opens in limited release on Nov. 27. That’s right in the middle of awards season pick ups so we could see another Oscar recognition for Redmayne.
