If you haven’t seen The Danish Girl yet, the critically acclaimed film starring Eddie Redmayne as a transgender woman in 1920s Denmark who undergoes one of the first gender reassignment surgeries, tomorrow is your chance to check it out without dropping $16 at The Arclight: Redmayne will join director Tom Hooper and producer Gail Mutrux at The Theatre at the ACE Hotel to talk about the film following a free screening.
The movie is based on the story of painter Einar Wegener (Redmayne), who transitions to become Lili Elbe. Wegener was married to painter Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander), who supported Elbe through her transition. The two lived together in Paris as women, until (spoiler alert!) their marriage was dissolved by the courts. Elbe died shortly thereafter, following a botched surgery.
Tickets for the event are available here. Doors are at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 19.
