About Albert Nobbs

Glenn Close gives one of the performances of her career as a woman who masquerades as a man to free herself from the restraints of womanhood in 19th Century Ireland. She plays Albert Nobbs, a waiter at a hotel in Dublin. Introverted and humble, Albert has been quietly passing as a man for decades. All he wants is to save enough money so that he can open his own shop and become a respectable businessman. He thinks that perhaps the young maid Helen (Mia Wasikowska) would make a good wife to stand by his side. Helen is bewildered by Albert's stilted courtship measures and instead becomes attracted to Joe (Aaron Johnson), who is fixing the hotel boiler. Although closer to Helen's age, Joe drinks and has a temper, which might be dangerous for Albert who must protect his secret at all costs.
