THE DANISH GIRL: WOMEN LOOK BETTER IN SUITS THAN MEN DO IN DRESSES
We are obviously among the few moviegoers who were not particularly impressed with Eddie Redmayne’s performance in The Danish Girl. The movie itself, set in Copenhagen in the 1920’s, is quite lush and beautiful to look at – costumes and locations are exquisitely photographed. Alicia Vikander, who plays Redmayne’s character’s artistic wife is delightful. Eddie’s character was enchanted with women’s apparel and this supports our theory that fashion plays a very large part in a man’s desire to become female. It’s all about the lipstick and silk undies. Anyway, Eddie plays the trans character in female attire as geeky, simpering, and coy. Is THAT what he thinks women are like? Insulting. Fortunately, the female characters in the movie were powerful and smart, so it’s not a total loss.
