    Ok i saw the trailer for this last night.
    It looks like a very well made and thought provoking film
    Kudos to Eddie Redmayne for being straight yet taking on such an effeminate and daring role.
    In the trailer he is a happily married man until one day his wife asks him to wear a womans dress so she can make a portrait of a woman and her friend isn't available so she suggests her husband dress up in drag for her.
    As he slowly glides his hand down the silk chiffon material something incredible happens.
    He opens the pandoras box to some very hidden urges and feelings...yes he feels and longs to be a woman.
    This is the story about the first male who attempted a sex change. Now i haven't seen the film yet but im pretty sure the surgery wasnt successful.I had read about it somewhere
    The thing that is kind of bothering me is the title.
    "The Danish girl". Scientifically he is not a girl or a woman..so why did they call this film "the danish girl"??
    He wasn't born a girl and never successfully made it to the other gender...
    Isn't this title misleading????
    I can dress up in drag honey but that dont make me a woman!!!!!
    This is like art deco saying he is married all the time...
    The danish girl is not a girl but a guy who WANTS to be a girl or feels like one anyway...
    I guess they can call their movie whatever they want but that doesn't make it 100% accurate either.

    Spoiler alert?icon_rolleyes.gif


    Yeah how dare they. I also was apalled when i saw No Country for Old Men....Tommy Lee Jones is old. Why was he allowed in the country??

    Oh, and Apocalypse Now...that sucked. It wasn't even about the end of the world. I have filed several lawsuits, yet the won't change the name. And Naked Lunch....don't even get me started on that one.

    Watch the film and you'll see the relevance of the title.
    I didn't really want to see the film but everyone said how good it was.
    It was amazing. Eddie Redmayne is an excellent actor and it's such a great story. I'd highly recommend.

    Saw the movie, the acting was incredible. It goes a little deeper in the movie, it wasn't just a switch that flipped when he tried on the dress. I think the point they are making with the title is that even without the surgery transgender people are the gender they are on the inside not the outside.

    I think the title is appropriate because they didn't want to give away the story in the title.

    The girl in the title is not the wife!!!
    Actually the more i think about it, the title IS quite clever..
