How Eddie Redmayne’s Transgender Role in ‘The Danish Girl’ Went From “Commercial Poison” to Oscar Contender

Last year’s best actor, Redmayne, takes on another transforming role, playing the first person ever to undergo a sex-change operation in a film that took 10 years (and as many false starts) to get to the screen.

Eddie Redmayne was about to shoot the climactic battle sequence in Les Miserables — the part where the French Army fires cannonballs into the barricades to scatter the student revolutionaries — when director Tom Hooper calmly strolled across the battlefield and handed the young actor a large unmarked envelope.

“I think he said something simple like, ‘Read it,'” recalls Redmayne, 33, recalls of that day in 2011. “Tom has a very gentle manner.”

The pages inside — the screenplay for The Danish Girl — had been circulating among filmmakers and actors in just this fashion for the better part of a decade. At moments over the years, there were even hopes that the film actually might get made — at one point, Nicole Kidman was signed for the lead — but something always went wrong. Financing fell through. Or talent dropped out. Or somebody got cold feet. “It was the subject matter,” says Lucinda Coxon, who wrote the script in the envelope. “It was considered commercial poison.”

Times change. And it’s hard to imagine a more hospitable moment than right now for a commercially viable movie based on the life of Lili Elbe, a Danish painter in the 1920s who — with the help of a supportive wife (played by Ex Machina and Man From U.N.C.L.E. newcomer Alicia Vikander) — became the first person in history to undergo a male-to-female sex- change operation. Far from poison, the subject matter has reunited an award-winning director (before Les Miserables, Hooper won an Oscar for The King’s Speech) and an award-winning actor (after Les Miserables, Redmayne won one for The Theory of Everything) to finally bring to the screen the story of a transgender icon predating Caitlyn Jenner by nearly 100 years.

Capri, Hollywood Fest to Honor ‘The Danish Girl’

Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl will receive a Humanitarian Award from Capri, Hollywood—The International Film Festival. The transgender drama film about artist Lili Elbe, which bowed this year in Venice, stars Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander.

The festival also announced that Paolo Sorrentino’s Youth, which premiered in Cannes, has been named European film of the year. The film stars Michael Caine as a retired orchestra conducter who is called back into duty by the Queen of England. Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano and Jane Fonda also star.

“Both Tom Hooper and the Italian maestro Paolo Sorrentino have the uncanny ability to bring highly sensitive subject matter to the screen in a way that impacts audiences on a global basis,” said festival director Pascal Vicedomini. “I am truly pleased that we are able to honor their most recent work at this year’s festival.”

The Danish Girl opens in the U.S. on Nov. 27 and in Italy on Feb 4. 2016. The Capri screening will be sidelined by a forum from the Young People Against Homophobia to discuss current issues in Italy. Youth, which already played in Italy, opens Dec. 4 in the U.S.

This year marks the 20th edition of the festival, which runs Dec. 26-Jan. 2. This year’s edition will be presided over by Danish director Bille August, and will be dedicated to French actress Brigitte Bardot. Lina Wertmuller serves as Honorary President and Mark Canton serves as Honorary Chairperson.  [Source]
