Pretty, romantic drama. I enjoyed the beauty, artistry, romanticism, and dramatism of the film and the love between the two characters; particularly at the beginning. However, I must confess I wasn't able to relate and resonate all that well with the transgender theme, and the film drifted off a bit for me into something that didn't plug all that easily on my heartstrings- although there were still many nice moments. I also must admit I borrowed the movie specifically in the hopes of some education and inspiration to do more research on the matter myself.

Every time I see a film with Eddie Redmayne I pick it up. I have never been disappointed. There are actors who really disappear in the role. Eddie Redmayne does. I was first aware of him in the mini-series "The Pillars of the Earth". He has not disappointed me yet.

This film shows how courage and love can reach achievements for both individuals in their lives and for all of us living in this world.

Really quite wonderful. The landscapes and the people are both drawn beautifully.

A tour de force of acting about two remarkable people. Eddie R. is amazing as he transforms without dollops of make-up etc. It is all done through his innate talent. I was transfixed.

It was an interesting movie. I applaud Eddie for taking on such a unique role and he performed brilliantly. Such an amazing actor who takes your breath away. Very heart touching movie.
