A man with a secret. A woman with a dream.
Nominated in 2012 for 3 Academy Awards® including Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, Glenn Close, in the title role, 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.
Also starring a prestigious international cast including Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson, Janet McTeer, Brendan Gleeson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Albert Nobbs is a “terrific” (IndieWIRE) film adapted from the short story by Irish author George Moore. Controversial singer Sinéad O’Connor sings the film’s haunting closing theme, co-written by Glenn Close.
Special Features include Audio Commentary, Deleted Scenes and more.

Rotten: File under interesting failure, although with three Oscar nominations (Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Costume), there must surely be people out there somewhere convinced by this relentlessly tasteful affair.-, Film4, May 02, 2012
Rotten: It's a film whose unrelaxed body language screams: "Give me prizes!"-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK], April 26, 2012
Rotten: For all its gender-bending intrigue, this is a cataclysmically sexless film: seldom has drag felt like such a drag.-Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph, April 26, 2012
Rotten: The grim, grey-hued result is about as far from contemporary drag chic as it's possible to get - appropriate for the subject matter, perhaps, but hardly the stuff of satisfying cinema.-Tom Huddleston, Time Out, April 24, 2012
Although this movie had fine acting in it, it was rather boring.
Reviewer: Candace Review refers to DVD version
This is probably the most refreshing story I have ever seen. The plot is one I would never have expected. I sat riveted to the screen. I give this move two thumbs up!
