    “The Danish Girl” touches on these thoughts and questions in a compelling way. The movie tells the true story of the first person to go through gender reassignment surgery, but it has far more to offer than just Lili Elbe’s tale; it beautifully tackles what it’s like to go through an identity crisis and captures the difficulty of dealing with transition, both personally and for those closest to them.

As was the case with his Oscar-winning “The King’s Speech” and “Les Miserables,” Hooper’s latest is tasteful and restrained to a fault.
