It’s all true is based on true events and inspired by the homonymous book by David Ebershoff…
The Danish Girl tells the biography of Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne), who was born Einar Mogens Wegener and was the first person to undergo surgery gender change.
Apart from this fact, which in itself is a historical pioneering spirit, the film tells, through the loving relationship of the Danish painter Gerda (Alicia Vikander), the whole process of his discovery as a woman. Sounds simple? It is an overwhelming drama, delicate, sensitive and, of course, exciting. It could be the story of a woman born in a man’s body. It could also be the story of two women relationship. Or a psychological drama with issues of gender involved. But… the Danish Girl is all in one. It was not coincidence that has received two Academy Award nominations and won three awards from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA): for Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Makeup. It is a must! Take a stock of tissues, because I bet you will need.
