Albert Nobbs Trailer. Rodrigo Garcia‘s Albert Nobbs (2011) movie trailer stars Glenn Close, Mia Wasikowska, Brendan Gleeson, Aaron Johnson, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Albert Nobbs‘ plot synopsis: “19th century Ireland: a woman with no husband or family and without work would face a bleak life of poverty and loneliness. Albert, a shy butler who keeps himself to himself, has been hiding a deep secret for years – ‘he’ is a woman who has had to dress and behave as a man all her life in order to escape this fate. When handsome painter Hubert Page arrives at the hotel, Albert is inspired to try and escape the false life she has created for herself. She gathers her nerves to court beautiful, saucy young maid Helen in whom she thinks she’s found a soul-mate – but Helen’s eye is on a new arrival: handsome, bad-boy Joe, the new handy-man! As Albert dares to hope that she might one day live a normal life, we catch a glimpse of a free-spirited woman who is caught in the wrong time… This humorous but ultimately poignant ensemble story about life ‘below-stairs’ is nothing less than Gosford Park meets Boys Don’t Cry.”
Glenn Close certainly transforms herself in Albert Nobbs, appearance and voice. Its an impressive metamorphosis. Apparently, its “a role that Close has studied and practiced for years” and Albert Nobbs – the film – has been a passion project of hers. I can see why: true actors and actresses most dream of a script where they are given the opportunity to dissolve into a character and only be seen as that character on screen.
Albert Nobbs also stars Maria Doyle Kennedy, John Light, Janet McTeer, Pauline Collins, Brenda Fricker, Bronagh Gallagher, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Emerald Fennell, and Annie Starke.
