“THE DANISH GIRL” opens soon exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas


“THE DANISH GIRL” OPENS SOON EXCLUSIVELY AT AYALA MALLS CINEMAS

From the Oscar-winning director of “The King’s Speech” comes Universal Pictures' controversial and provocative drama “The Danish Girl” starring Academy Award-honorees Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) and Alicia Vikander (“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”).

The film will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas starting February 03, 2016.

Based on the book by David Ebershoff, “The Danish Girl” tells the extraordinary story of Lili Elbe, one of the world's first people to undergo gender confirmation surgery, and the powerful love story of two people who go through Lili's journey together. It movingly portrays a marriage going through a profound transformation.

Scripted by Lucinda Coxon film also stars Ben Whishaw, Sebastian Koch, Amber Heard, and Matthias Schoenaerts.

In 1926 in Copenhagen, artist Einar Wegener (Redmayne) is married to Gerda Wegener (Vikander) and is revered for landscape paintings. Gerda is also an artist, less renowned but steadily working as a portraitist of prominent citizens. Theirs is a strong and loving marriage, yet personal and professional epiphanies have eluded them both.

That all begins to change one day when, on deadline for a portrait, Gerda asks her husband to fill in for a model by putting on a dress so that she can finish the painting. The experience is transformative, as Einar soon realizes that being Lili is an expression of her truest self, and she begins living her life as a woman. Gerda unexpectedly finds that she has a new muse, and renewed creative ferment. But the couple soon brush up against society's disapproval.

They leave their homeland for the more open-minded world of Paris. There, it is Gerda's career that continues to flourish. The couple's marriage evolves - and not without strain. But again and again Gerda supports Lili during her journey as a transgender woman. Through the other, each of them finds the courage to be who they are at heart.

“The Danish Girl” is vying for four Academy Awards, namely Best Actor (Redmayne), Best Supporting Actress (Vikander), Best Production Design and Best Costume Design.

At the recently-concluded Golden Globe Awards, the film was nominated for Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Original Score.



“The Danish Girl” is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

The hilarious original musical parody of "Fifty Shades of Grey" is coming to Manila!


With sold out audiences in New York and a hit run in Las Vegas, the original parody 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL is coming to Manila from February 12 – 28, 2016 at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium in RCBC Plaza, Makati City.

Fifty Shades of Grey has topped best-seller lists around the world with over 125 million copies sold worldwide and a 2015 blockbuster movie. A sexy, hilarious romp, 50 SHADES! The Musical Parody is a laugh out loud night of fun that audiences won’t want to miss!

The musical opens with a ladies book club deciding to read Fifty Shades of Grey. Through their interpretation of the novel, the audience is led on a hilarious roller coaster ride of this unlikely bestseller. The show is full of dance numbers, 11 original songs and a live band backing the performance. Original songs include “How Much Can I Take?”, “I Don’t Make Love”, and “There’s a Hole Inside of Me”.

Like the book series, 50 SHADES! The Musical Parody is surely not for those under the age of 18, but does not cross boundaries that would make general audiences squirm. The show has audiences rolling on the floor, dancing in the aisles and begging for more. Now it’s Manila’s turn to experience this smash hit show that has toured all over US and Canada and has been produced in several other countries including UK, Australia and China.

Promoted in the Philippines by Vivre Fort Entertainment and 9 Works Theatrical, 50 SHADES! The Musical Parody will rock your world—and it’s even more fun in a group! Take your friends, take your co-workers and, as Time Out Los Angeles says, “TAKE YOUR INNER GODDESS TO THIS SMASH HIT!”




Tickets are on sale at SM Tickets, Ticketworld and Ticketnet outlets. Only limited tickets are available so better act fast. For more information about the show, visit www.50shadesmanila.com or call (02) 470 6956.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
