The Danish Girl (out Jan 21) is set in the 1920s and takes us inside the world of Einar Wegener - one of the first individuals to have a sex change operation. It’s tough to illustrate the “inner anguish” of their respective characters on screen but Eddie Redmayne and co-star Alicia Vikander (as his wife) do their best. It’s hard not to feel empathy for their situation. Grade: B+.
