Eddie Redmayne may want to get another Oscar acceptance speech ready.
The Brit actor absolutely thrills in the first trailer for The Danish Girl.
Redmayne, who won his first Oscar earlier this year for playing Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, stars in The Danish Girl as Einar Wegener, a Danish painter who changed her name to Lili Elbe after becoming the first man to have sexual reassignment surgery in 1931.
In the trailer we watch as Einar comes to the realization that he was born a woman after his wife, fellow artist Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander), asks him to pose for a painting as a woman.
The trailer is an emotional rollercoaster. Lili is born but not before Gerda protests but then accepts her gender identity.
When Gerda sees Lili kiss a man (Ben Whishaw), she cries, "Lily doesn't exist. We were playing a game."
Later, Lili tells a doctor, "The fact is I believe that I'm a woman."
Gerda agrees. "I believe it, too," she says.
