As mentioned in my introduction, occasionally I will post something about my other hobby--film. Thus, I offer up the delicious The Danish Girl. This is a very "quiet" film based on the true story of the Danish artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. Eddie Redmayne is wonderful and his transformation into first the transvestite Lili and then to the transexual Lili [I am avoiding mentioning the spoiler at the end] is subtle, sweet, and mesmerising. And, BTW, Redmayne is also fantastic in The Theory of Everything where he also transforms himself, this time into Stephen Hawking.
