The Danish Girl is based on a true, historical novel which tells the story of Lili (Eddie Redmayne), who was originally called Einar, a landscape painter who discovered she was a woman after posing in women's clothes for her wife.
With the support of wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander) Einar had one of the first gender reassignment surgeries in the world, and lived out the rest of her life as Lili Elbe.
And if the superstar leading cast and exciting plot aren't enough, the film is being directed by Tom Hooper, who was also in the director's chair for Les Miserables and The King's Speech. So it's fair to say audiences are expecting something pretty special!
