This needs a positive comment so I'm going to make it. It's beautifully filmed, with constantly gorgeous framing, deals with an interesting subject matter, and has great performances. I can recognise that it has flaws - mainly in the script - but the overall impact, for me, overrides those.
Alicia Vikander is my new favorite actress.
cringeworthy first half. the script is horrendous and gives the actors absolutely nothing to work with. that being said i think both eddie redmayne and alicia vikander give stunning performances. i agree with the oscar-bait comments and so wish lili elbe would have gotten the film that she deserved, but alas, the world is not a wish-granting factory. i don't think the movie is boring or poorly made, i just think it is absolutely irrelevant. which - considering the importance of its subject matter - is an achievement in and of itself.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
