The Danish Girl movie quotes bring the trailblazing life of Einar Wegener/Lili Elbe to the big screen for a feature film. The historical drama was directed by Tom Hooper using a screenplay Lucinda Coxon adapted from a novel of the same name by David Evershoff. The Danish Girl opened in theaters in the United States on November 27, 2015, and in the United Kingdom on January 1, 2016.

In The Danish Girl, artists Einar (Eddie Redmayne) and Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) are a happily married couple in the 1920s in Copenhagen. When Gerda asks Einar to don a dress and pose for a painting she needs to finish, the simple act brings something in Einar that will change them both, and the world, forever.

After that moment, Einar could not shake the feelings that he was in the wrong gender body and began living life as a woman, Lili. Initially, this brought trouble and strife to his marriage but eventually, Gerda grew to support Lili, including when she underwent sex reassignment surgery. But as much as Gerda could support Lili, their marriage was over and they both now needed to deal with that.

Costarring Matthias Schoenaerts, Ben Wishaw and Amber Heard, The Danish Girl opened in theaters alongside the likes of Creed, The Good Dinosaur, and The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2.
