Review: Albert Nobbs (15)

First published in Cinema reviews

Glenn Close stars as a woman who passes herself off as a butler tin 19th century Ireland.

Albert Nobbs (Close) is a dedicated member of staff at Morrison’s Hotel in Dublin.

For years, Albert has kept his gender a secret but the subterfuge is shattered when he shares his room with painter Hubert Page (Janet McTeer), who also turns out to be a woman in disguise.

Hubert’s revelation that he has a wife (Bronagh Gallagher) inspires Albert to contemplate a marriage proposal to pretty maid Helen (Mia Wasikowska).
