07/30/2015 admin 0 Comment(s) The Danish Girl

Eddie Redmayne’s “The Danish Girl” will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.

The film sees Redmayne in the role of transgender woman Lili Elbe, one of the first recipients of sex reassignment surgery. The festival runs from Sept. 2 -12.

Redmayne, who won an Oscar last year for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything,” said earlier this year that playing “transformative” characters is “not a concerted choice.”

“If your dream is to tell stories, interesting stories, play interesting people. That’s the bottom line,” he told GQ UK. “I have been incredibly lucky to portray Stephen Hawking and Lili. They are both extraordinary people and as an actor it doesn’t get better than that.”

“There is so much I need to investigate,” added Redmayne. “It’s a very famous story within the trans community.”

Redmayne and fellow Englishman Benedict Cumberbatch’s enormous Hollywood success has drawn the ire of many in the British acting community, who argue that the superstar duo, because of their privileged upbringings, were afforded far more opportunities to make it big than were their working class actor counterparts.

English actor James Fox, in an interview published Tuesday, called the criticism of Redmayne and Cumberbatch “classist.”

“I was one of the only actors of my background who made it in my 20s,” Fox told the Telegraph. “All the rest were working class: Terry Stamp, Albie Finney, Tom Courtenay, Michael Caine. No-one turned around and said, ‘Oi, all those working class people have got an advantage over you posh twits.'”

British actor Rupert Everett has also dismissed the criticism. “The upper class people are making the films that the Americans like but that’s how it is. There’s nothing we can do about that,” he told the Radio Times in May. “We can’t force the Americans to change their minds but we could also just not be so envious and bitter about it and celebrate at the same time all the other people who do amazing work and are huge stars in our own country and then get to break out as well.”
