Yesterday, I saw the new trailer for The Danish Girl, the new film with Eddie Redmayne.
From the trailer, I gathered that it is about a pretty male Danish painter who marries a female one. One day, he models for her by dressing up as a woman and he likes it. A lot. She gains success and they keep doing this until he goes to a party as a she and ends up kissing another guy. She sees that but sticks by him. They seek help from a doctor who diagnosed his condition and gives him a gender changing operation. The end.
I would’ve liked to see the film but if that’s the whole of it, then what’s the point??
Trailers are an artform and I believe that anything in the first act/first third of the film is fair game for the trailer. Otherwise, who would buy your goods when you have given it away in under 2.5 minutes?
See for yourself. Or not, if you actually want to see the film itself.
