Nominated for 4 Oscars including Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress
5 BAFTA Nominations, including Outstanding British Film, Best Actor and Best Actress. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne takes on his next great acting challenge playing Lili Elbe, one of the first known people to undergo gender reassignment surgery.
Born Einar Wegener, she gradually realised that she was a woman trapped in a man’s body. In the 1920s, such a thing was unheard of. The surgery had never been attempted before but it was Lili’s only chance to be the person she was supposed to be.
