Win tickets to see ‘The Danish Girl’ and a main course for two in the IFI Café Bar on Tuesday January 12 at 6.30pm.
Specially for IFI’s Feast Your Eyes event – a night pairing a feature with a specially devised menu – we have teamed up with the IFI to give you a chance to win a meal and tickets to see The Danish Girl for two.
Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) stars as Einar Wegener, a Danish artist who was one of the first recipients of gender reassignment surgery in this delicate, beautifully composed biopic directed by another Oscar winner, Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech).
Married couple Einar and Gerda (Alicia Vikander) are artists in 1920s Copenhagen, both painters, he of landscapes and she of portraits. One morning Gerda asks her husband to sit for a portrait of a ballerina, awakening in Einar a long repressed desire to explore his feminine side, which finds expression in the creation of Lili Elbe, his increasingly dominant alter ego.
Gerda’s paintings of him as a woman start to get serious attention, but the distinction between Einar and Lili continues to blur to the point where Einar chooses to physically become Lili.
