Pillow Cinema: The Danish Girl
Even better than a Danish pastry
It's time for a cinema revolution…and it's gonna be stuffed with feathers. Situated in the heart of East London, Pillow Cinema have transformed the stunning Tudor home Sutton House into a cosy space filled with fatboy bean bags and gallery chairs. They’ll be screening a great range of films, so come and join them for the loveliest, comfiest, cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud. The Danish Girl tells the story of one of the first recipients of sex change surgery, loosely based on the experiences of Danish artist Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne) and wife Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander). A heartfelt and emotional piece, the film garnered Redmayne an Oscar nomination and Vikander an Oscar win for Best Actress In A Leading Role. "You can't take your eyes off Redmayne as a pioneer in gender reassignment surgery. And Vikander does wonders as a wife who stands by her woman." – Rolling Stone "One of the year's finest films." – New York Post Certificate: 15. Runtime: 2 hours. Doors open 30 minutes before film start time.
"Beautiful, humane and moving…"
