Albert Nobbs

Glenn Close turns in an astonishing title performance as a woman in late 19th-century Ireland who, for the economic security otherwise unobtainable, lives in the guise of a man so she can hold down a butler's position at a posh resort. When "Albert" learns that the hotel's affable new housepainter (Janet McTeer) is maintaining the same sort of deception - and is at peace with it - she seeks to address her own unhappiness. Based on the short story "The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs" by George Moore. Mia Wasikowska, Pauline Collins, Aaron Johnson co-star.
