Here’s our list of the 2015 Fall movies that we can’t wait to see!

The Venice Film Festival’s late-summer scheduling — a fixture since its inception 83 years ago — gives it sprocket-opera status it wouldn’t hold if it swapped places with, say, the Berlinale. (And not just because the skinny sandbar of the Lido is a lot less alluringly balmy in February.) As the American awards season has expanded, in the last couple of decades, into a six-month industry of promotion as restless as the speculation that surrounds it, this most venerably refined of festivals has become its near-accidental starting block.
Expense and distance protect it from the fever-pitch Oscar conversation that intensifies at Telluride and Toronto mere days after Venice raises its curtain, but these aren’t soundproof barriers: In an era when a film’s fate can be sealed on Twitter mere minutes after it first screens, contenders are swiftly anointed and annihilated in the Italian heat.

There’s no doubt that Eddie Redmayne will be back in the Oscar race this season. The thirty-three-year-old actor will follow-up his Academy Award-winning performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything with his most recent turn as the eponymous Danish girl in Tom Hooper’s next film.
Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) co-stars as Copenhagen’s Gerda Wegender, an artist who asks her husband Einar (Redmayne) to fill in for her female model. Einar develops a preference for his female physical appearance, later becoming one of the first known recipients of sexual reassignment surgery. What transpires in between is a disarray of confusion, betrayal, misunderstandings, and of course, love.

You may not have been familiar with the name Eddie Redmayne before he stunned people in last year’s The Theory of Everything, but everyone is going to know him soon enough, and if The Danish Girl isn’t enough, his turn in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will lock up the rest of the general populace.
More importantly, perhaps, it looks as though he may be taking another run at Best Actor awards, not just because he’s talented, but because he has back-to-back vehicles that are designed for award attention. Both are biopics that require one to act in ways that are, at the very least, out of the ordinary. They are biopics that focus on people who have to deal with massive adversity of one sort or another. And, they are biopics of people that, by and large, people aren’t especially interested in.

“I believe that I am a woman,” Redmayne’s character tells his wife in the teaser. “And I believe you too,” she says supportively.
Redmayne plays Danish artist Einar Wegener, later known as Lili Elbe — one of the first people to undergo a sex-change operation. The trailer begins with the early days of their marriage, when Einar’s wife, Gerda (played by Alicia Vikander), painted him while dressed in women’s clothes. The lines get blurred when Einar kisses a man in secret during an evening out with Gerda.
“This is not my body, I have to let it go,” Einar later says before undergoing a life-threatening sex-change surgery.

The first trailer for the drama, viewable above, shows how artist Lili, previously known as Einar Wegener, became one of the world's first known recipients of gender confirmation surgery in 1930.

"I absolutely salute [Caitlyn's] courage," Redmayne said. "Hers is a very specific story, and it's one that shouldn't stand for everybody's.
