Glenn Close is nominated for Best Actress in the 84th Academy Awards for her role as a woman who disguises herself as a man her entire life in 19th century Dublin. As a young orphan girl, “Albert” is attacked by five young men, presumably raped. From that point forward “Albert” gets a job as a waiter and works her entire life to save enough money to own her own business.
As well, Albert Nobbs is nominated for Best Makeup.
Both Close and McTeer are fantastic and the story is interesting, although I am sure this movie is not for everyone. I would say, this movie is worth a watch on cable, but not a theater going experience.
