danish-girl-tickets-philadelphiaLooking for a midweek movie/date night?

There have been 25 pairs of tickets set aside for Philly Mag readers at an early screening of Tom Hooper‘s much-buzzed-about film The Danish Girl. The showing takes place next Wednesday, December 9th, at 7:30 pm at Ritz Five.

Wanna go? I’m going to make this really easy: Between now and noon on December 8th, email me at [email protected] with the subject line “Lemme see The Danish Girl!” The first 25 people to email me will snag two seats for themselves and a friend.

The Danish Girl stars Eddie Redmayne in a role that many are saying will win him a best acting Oscar for the second year in a row. He plays turn-of-the-century artist Lili Elbe, who made history when she became one of the first people to undergo gender reassignment surgery. The film concerns her marriage to Gerda Wegener, played by Alicia Vikander, and their journey navigating a relationship and transgender issues long before the world knew Caitlyn Jenner or Laverne Cox.

The film took home a prize at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival, and multiple trophies at the 19th Hollywood Film Awards, including Best Director and Best Breakout Actress for Vikander. Check out the trailer below. It opens in Philly at Ritz East on December 11th.
