Alicia Vikander – congratulations! Now you can do what you want! The world is at your feet, and with an Oscar in your handbag becoming only more possible.
As an actress, you have a noticeably strong charisma and intensity. You are well worth your Oscar, but could have got the statuette for a better film than The Danish Girl.
First I saw Alicia Vikander, except in a few episodes of the TV series Other Avenue, was in David Route March short film Love (2008). An intense film about a sexual assault between two men with the then unknown Adam Lundgren in the lead role. The film was highly touching, the subject previously completely oskildrat the Swedish film and the acting stakes brilliant. It was a blatant abuse of the Gothenburg Film Festival to refuse to show the film, according to the director on the grounds that the subject was too heavy. Something I then noticed an article in the GC.
Two years later beat Alicia Vikander with full force through on the big screen in the role of Catherine Lisa Langseths intelligent, relentless drama to what is beautiful. The film is based on Langseths monologue of the Royal Dramatic Theatre / generator, the beloved, and revolves around the power relations in the cultural elite. It was recorded at the Concert Hall in Gothenburg, and your opponent Samuel Fröler seen as the married, twice as old, the conductor who initially seduces Catherine in the drama, which still gives the Pygmalion theme of a nasty twist.
Alicia Vikander and Lisa Langseth made in 2013 in addition to the unpleasant, constantly chafing and easy surrealist film Hotel together with, among others, David Dencik, Nina Zanjani, Simon J Berger and Åsa Prison. A group of lost people in group therapy which checking into a hotel for the anonymous environment, if possible, find back to themselves and to their feelings. It goes like that.
Alicia Vikander often choose interesting contexts and characters. Many times her way with great presence in every gesture portray their roles more interesting than the big picture – how the film ultimately becomes. This applies not least her contribution as British writer Vera Brittain in unnecessary reporting albeit stylish drama Testament of Youth. It comes in a high degree to the movie she won the Oscar for – The Danish Girl – in which she plays the fascinating, innovative artist Gerda Wagener. A stunning woman in a captivating and changing era, which unfortunately reduced to a supporting role in the film about his own life with Einar Wagener who change sex to Lily Elbe.
In the costume drama A Royal Affair, we Vikander as a fifteen year old princess forced into a marriage with a mad king Christian VII of Denmark.
