The Danish Girl takes place in the 1920s and follows a strong and loving marriage, which evolves as Gerda Wegener (Vikander) supports Lili Elbe (Redmayne) during her journey as a transgender woman. Through the other, each of them finds the courage to be who they are at heart. Based on Lili Elbe's diaries and memoir Man Into Woman and the book by David Ebershoff. (Gary Reber)

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture is stylishly and gorgeously rendered with a warm and rich color palette that exhibits at times the look of a painting. Hues are perfectly natural and vividly realistic. Fleshtones are naturally hued throughout. Contrast is well balanced with natural blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Resolution is excellent, with the finest detail visible in facial features, hair, finely tailored clothing, and object textures. This is a masterfully photographed picture with beautifully natural imagery that is cinematically reference quality and visually stunning throughout. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack, while dialogue focused, features a gorgeously beautiful and lush orchestral score penned by Alexandre Desplat and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. The music is virtually the singular surround element and nicely envelopes the soundfield with immersive surround. Dialogue is superbly integrated spatially and natural sounding throughout. This is a wonderful subtle and nuanced soundtrack that sounds natural, with excellent fidelity. (Gary Reber)
