Exciting news as Focus Features have announced that “The Danish Girl” will be released in the US on Thanksgiving Weekend! The film will premiere in both New York and LA on Friday November 27th, 2015.
The film is directed by Tom Hooper and is based on David Ebershoff’s novel and narrates the exceptional love story of early 20th-century Danish artists Einar and Gerda Wegener whose marriage and work are cast into the unknown when Einar begins a groundbreaking journey to become one of the world’s first transgender women, Lili Elbe. As you probably know, Eddie stars as Einar/Lili and his co-star is the talented Alicia Vikander.
Focus Features’s CEO Peter Schlessel shared some words in regards to the release of the project.
“In the tradition of Focus’ history of epic and moving love stories, THE DANISH GIRL promises to be unforgettable. Tom Hooper is an extraordinary storyteller who always elicits beautiful performances from his actors. We are so pleased to be working with Eddie Redmayne again after our shared success with Working Title on The Theory of Everything.”
