Eddie Reymayne Shines in New Trailer For “The Danish Girl”

If you’ve seen last year’s The Theory of Everything, you would already know Oscar winner Eddie Reymayne is quite talented. Actually, no, talented doesn’t even begin to describe the Brit’s affinity for complex characters. I first discovered British actor, Eddie Reymayne, while watching the 2007 film, Savage Grace. Eddie Reymayne’s career hadn’t quite taken off yet, but it was apparent from his invigorating performance that he was soon going to become a major star.

Flash forward to 2014, and it seemed as if there wasn’t a person alive in Hollywood, who didn’t know who Eddie was. Perhaps that’s because the actor’s talent onscreen knows no bounds. Earlier today, the first trailer for Redmayne’s highly anticipated films, The Danish Girl was released. The film tells the true story of artist Lili Elbe, who was the first man to undergo gender reassignment surgery in the 1930s.

Before Reymayne accepted his role in the film, he admitted to Out magazine he had a lot to learn when it came to transgenderism.

My greatest ignorance when I started was that gender and sexuality were related” explained Reymayne “And that’s one of the key things I want to hammer home to the world: You can be gay or straight, trans man or woman, and those two things are not necessarily aligned.”

In the trailer below, it’s apparent that the film is going to be widely critiqued, but not for the reasons one would expect. Reymayne’s portrayal as Lili is incredibly haunting and utterly heart wrenching.  I literally received  goosebumps from watching the trailer. I can practically hear the award nominations commencing.

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
