See Eddie Redmayne And Alicia Vikander In A Pivotal Scene From 'The Danish Girl'

Tom Hooper's film opens in wide release on Christmas.

Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander are in the thick of the Oscar derby for their performances in "The Danish Girl," a moving film directed by "The King's Speech" and "Les Misérables" captain Tom Hooper. The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL, have an exclusive clip in which Gerta (Vikander) confronts her spouse, Lili Elbe (Redmayne), who was born into the body of a man named Einar Wegener and became the first person to undergo successful gender-confirmation surgery.

In the scene, Gerta, who encouraged Einar to dress as a woman before realizing its implications on their relationship, returns home from an art event to find Lili in feminine clothing.

Watch the clip below. "The Danish Girl" is now in limited release. It expands nationwide on Christmas Day.
