Focus Features has released a fantastic first trailer for Tom Hooper’s (The King’s Speech, Les Mis) upcoming drama The Danish Girl. Inspired by the lives of artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener (Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander), the film centers on the couple’s marriage and work as it evolves during Lili’s journey as a transgender pioneer.
The film will have its world premiere at Venice this week before making its North American debut at TIFF. Ben Whishaw, Sebastian Koch, Amber Heard, and Matthias Schoenaerts also star. The film opens November 7.
