Albert Nobbs
horizontal line

Superb acting highlights this intriguing, engaging, uneven, unpredictable film, which is based on George Moore's 1927 novel The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs, in which a frugal, reserved, repressed Irish woman (Glenn Close), who dreams of owning a tobacco shop in Dublin, carefully and meticulously disguises herself as a man for more than thirty years in order to work as a waiter at a posh hotel in 19th-century Ireland that hosts colorful, snobbish patrons (Brendan Gleeson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, John Light, et al.) who are attended to by dutiful inn employees (Mia Wasikowska, Brenda Fricker, Aaron Johnson, et al.), and suddenly she finds that her secret may be jeopardized when the strict, miserly hotel owner (Pauline Collins) forces a newly hired interior painter (Janet McTreer) to temporarily share her bed.
