Excruciatingly painful for the soul, beautiful and inspiring, but just you will feel just like Lily; a wholesomeness and closure you've always needed. Regardless of gender and identity. A forewarning though, you will want to cry but it gets stuck. It's the awful kind of heartache where you don't cry enough or let it out, no matter how bad it hurts. The perspective you gain, and from Eddie Redmayne's stunning performance, makes this a film you can't ever miss. It's on Netflix, it demands to be seen and loved and treasured forever. I can't recover from it, I'm madly in love.
The Danish Girl
Movies | Drama
Even though the concept for this story is centered around the horrors of waking up a giant bug, there were a lot of moments where I sympathized for Gregor's internal conflict and his obligation to his family. I feel a lot of people can relate to Gregor in that he changes from his usual routine and how his family members react to his sudden change is varied but tragic. His sister is the first one to have his back, making an effort to support him even though she's scared of him. She knows him the best. I don't want to get to into it but it relates a lot to the weight of family obligation, mental health, and the burden of uncertainty when life takes a sudden turn. I don't know if this was the intention, but it's what I took from it. I loved this book and will definitely read it over and over again.
