Movie Summary

Director:
Rodrigo Garcia
Released:
2012
Rating:
R
Based on the short story by Irish author George Moore and nominated for 3 Academy Awards, ALBERT NOBBS is "a lovely and surprising move." (A.O. Scott, The New York Times) Award-winning actress Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs) gives a "powerhouse performance" (New York Post) as a woman who passes as a man in order to work and survive in 19th century Ireland. Some thirty years after donning men's clothing, she finds herself trapped in a prison of her own making. Mia Wasikowska (Helen), Aaron Johnson (Joe) and Brendan Gleeson (Dr. Holloran) join a prestigious, international cast that includes Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Janet McTeer, Brenda Fricker and Pauline Collins.
