Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "The Danish Girl" is beautifully shot and tastefully made and acted, but only Vikander seems willing to take chances. Happily, she does. – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Dec 17, 2015

Rotten: It is well honed, engaging and accessible, stocked with handsome period piece images of life a century ago, unfailingly mature. And a bit wearisome. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Dec 17, 2015

Fresh: A sweet and inoffensive drama located in a pretty art deco past that makes the experience of transgender people palatable to a mainstream audience. – Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail, Dec 11, 2015

Fresh: The Danish Girl oversimplifies Lili's transition. If all she craves are the trappings of femininity, she is missing more than a second x-chromosome. Vikander's complex portrayal of Gerda reveals much more about the essence of being a woman. – Alexandra MacAaron, Women's Voices for Change, Dec 3, 2017
