Video Interview: Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Viklander on "The Danish Girl"

Eddie Redmayne gives another transformative performance as artist Einar Wegener in director Tom Hooper's ("The King's Speech," "Les Miserables") exquisitely portrayed "The Danish Girl." Set in 1920's Copenhagen and based on the novel of the same name by David Ebershoff, Wegener and his illustrator wife Gerda (played by Alicia Vikander), were brave trailblazers, as Einar was one of the first recipients of sex reassignment surgery, and became known as the transgender icon Lili Elbe.
