The Danish Girl | Ratings & Reviews

"To call The Danish Girl ‘Oscar-bait’ seems trite, but with the magical formula of an outstanding dramatic lead, hot subject matter and biopic, it’s hard to imagine a world where Eddie Redmayne won’t nab the Best Actor gong for the second year running."

Flicks, Leonie HaydenFlicks

"Destined to be the year's most talked-about arthouse phenomenon."


"The film is so tasteful that you might barely realise the story involves a man having his penis surgically removed at a time when such a thing was barely known or possible."

Time OutTime Out

"Hooper's tasteful, earnest, didactic style - magnified by Alexandre Desplat's decorously overwrought score - does the film no favors."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Has charm, but not quite passion."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Redmayne's translucence of skin and of expression serves his performance well."


"It frankly takes a while to unpack its themes and gain our interest, but it finally allows us to unmistakably experience the powerful drives that motivate the action."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Redmayne and Vikander, along with the film's dusky flourishes, allow The Danish Girl to reach beyond the awards it was designed to win."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Redmayne is able to shed his own persona to go undercover into the lives of people facing extreme physical and emotional challenges."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Tom Hooper transforms this story into the most gorgeous and accessible film that you could make given the subject."


"Redmayne's fine bone-china features are prime movers in all of this being convincing but so is his performance, reticent, vulnerable and acutely observed."
