Written by Lucinda Coxon and directed by Tom Hooper, The Danish Girl (2015, starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander) is a period piece, loosely inspired by the lives of painters Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. The film focuses on the former's journey, discovering her identity as a trans woman. The Danish Girl received praise for Redmayne and Vikander's performances.

While their performances were indeed excellent, the film, although a recent one, hasn't aged particularly well. As society's understanding of gender identity expands, many have argued that casting Redmayne as a trans woman was a poor choice. Although it's true that actors are often called to play parts of people very different from themselves, casting cis people as trans can reinforce the harmful stereotype that trans people are performing their identity, or pretending.

In 2021, Eddie Redmayne commented against author J. K. Rowling's transphobic comments and pointed out that he would not take the role of Lili Elbe if it was offered to him now. While the film is still enjoyable to watch, viewers should go into it expecting a fully authentic representation of queer experience.
