Knowing very little about this film before the screening, I found this to be one of the most powerful and thought provoking films from recent years. Tackling heavy themes linked to identity and the human condition, the fragmented narrative successfully tells this captivating story from different angles to paint a comprehensive picture. The cinematography is impressive, delivering detailed shots of the human body to aid the characterisation and transition of the protagonist. Eddie Redmayne’s performance is good, however what drives the film is the outstanding and superior performance from Alicia Vikander who makes the film an emotional and captivating experience.
