The Danish Girl will have it’s North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in mid September.
Still Alice premiered at the festival last year, as did the film which won Eddie Redmayne his best actor Oscar, The Theory of Everything. Redmayne will also be trying for back-to-back awards glory with The Danish Girl, which reunites him Tom Hooper director of Les Misérables and The King’s Speech. The film is one of the first mainstream movies to tackle transgender issues; it focuses on the life of Einar Wegenar, who underwent a sex-change operation in the early 1920s.
