In 19th century Ireland women aren’t encouraged to be independent. “Albert” (Glenn Close) poses as a man so that she can work as a butler in Dublin’s most ritzy hotel. While there she meets a handsome painter and begins to look for ways out of her lie. She saves up to buy a shop for herself and make it on her own.
The film is from writer/director Rodrigo Garcia. Fans of Six Feet Under and In Treatment should be excited as Garcia was a writer and director and both of those series.
Albert Nobbs will be in theaters sometime this fall but no official date has been released.
