About: Albert Nobbs

Adapted from a short story by author George Moore, ‘Albert Nobbs’ tells the incredible tale of a woman, portrayed by Glenn Close, who poses as a man in order to find work in 19th Century Ireland. Nobbs saves her every penny in the hope that one day she can buy her own business and escape the lie she’s created, but when she’s forced to share a room with the hotel’s painter, her cover is blown. Instead of exposing her, he convinces her to try to woo Helen (Mia Wasikowska), a young hotel maid and bag herself a wife. After living a lie for thirty years, she realises that she is trapped in the role and escaping it could be impossible.

‘Albert Nobbs’ is directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Mother and Child) with a script written by Glenn Close in collaboration with Man Booker prize-winning novelist John Banville.
