35mm Presentation - Glenn Close stars in this emotional and thought-provoking tale of a woman forced to live as a man, Albert Nobbs, in order to work and survive in 19th century Ireland. After thirty years of keeping up the charade, a new love threatens to destroy everything she's worked so hard to build, and 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 Janet McTeer, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Brenda Fricker and Pauline Collins. Rodrigo Garcia directs from a script that Glenn Close, along with Man Booker prize-winning novelist John Banville and Gabriella Prekop, adapted from a short story by Irish author George Moore.
