Fittingly, it sees Redmayne also dressed up as a sexy lady. He plays Lili Elbe, a transgender woman who, at the turn of the 20th century, was one of the first documented recipients of sex reassignment surgery. Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander co-stars as the wife who would come to understand and aid Elbe in her transition. Here's the trailer:
