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.
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.
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.
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.
He is such a queen !
