Loved Spotlight and Brooklyn. Read Room the book and liked it (Barbara bailed). Was put off by the movie reviews for it. Danish Girl up next. (That wouldn't be about Maja Alm would it? ;-)
I'd give Room a try if you like to see a movie after reading the book or vv. It's very well done & ends positively. Maja Alm and Lili Elbe are Danish girls under different spotlights!
