About The Danish Girl

The Danish Girl is an upcoming movie based on the true story of Danish artists Einar and Greta Wegener.

Movie story

The story is based on how the marriage of the two artists changed dramatically after Einar stood in for a female model that Greta was set to paint. Their portraits became very popular in Copenhagen during the 1920s, and Greta encouraged her husband to adopt the female guise, and what had started as just a harmless game, ended with Einar undergoing a transformation. The change led to the landmark 1931 operation that shocked the world and threatened the couple's love.
