I really enjoyed this movie. It says a lot about Victorian era culture.

A woman disguised and absorbed manhood to find independence. She worked at a hotel where she meets people, a lesbian, a beautiful young woman, and her rival. As she strives to reach her dreams, she has to figure herself out. *** Nothing really special about this movie except Glenn Close. Good to see Aaron Johnson portraying his role. Story wise, it fell short to give drama. Characters are not strong, their backgrounds are too shallow. There were numerous off scenes, I could pin-point the good ones. Almost bad but generally watchable.

Glenn Close and Janet McTeer were brilliant

Albert Nobbs: "Life without decency is unbearable".

The story is about a woman who struggles to find independence in 19th century Ireland and poses as a man so she can work as a butler at a top hotel. When she meets a painter it gives "Albert" the chance she needs to escape the lie she has been living.

Albert Nobbs has been described as an Oscar bait movie that's only purpose of existing is to win prizes, and while I do agree it is a bit Oscar bait and the movie itself is quite forgettable, but I'll be lying if I say there wasn't anything good in it. Compare this to other Oscar bait movies we've had in the past, this one isn't that bad or pretentious.

Glenn Close was unrecognizable in this movie. I really bought into her playing a man and it's not just by the ...

Albert Nobbs

Let me begin by saying I really enjoyed the film a lot. Glenn Close and Janet McTeer are fantastic as women living double lives as men; I'm very happy that they received Oscar nominations last year because they delivered two of the finest performances of 2011. Albert Nobbs does have some major issues however, but it's worth mentioning that it's hard to determine what could have made it better. The biggest problem I had with the film was that it was not as powerful or emotionally resonant as it could/should have been. I also didn't think Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson were that great which surprised me because they're rising stars. Overall though I think Albert Nobbs is worth the watch; the characters are touching and the lead performances are remarkable.
