The Danish Girl ★★★★½

This movie was such an emotional rollercoaster! It was difficult to see the strains on Lili and Gerda's relationship, because the first half of the film paints (haha pun) the picture of a perfectly happy couple. When Lili goes through her transition, Gerda's effort to stay with her is beautiful. Often, trans people are depicted as losing their loved ones in popular films but this one is different and I love that. Alicia Vikander really deserves an Oscar for her performance as Gerda, and Eddie Redmayne was brilliant as well!
