One of the interesting curiosities of the fall 2011 film slate has to be Albert Nobbs, a passion piece for Glenn Close about an English woman who disguises herself as a man and becomes a butler in in 19th century male dominated Ireland. Directed by Rodrigo Garcia, who has knack for putting together interesting pieces for women...Mother and Child, Nine Lives, Thing You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her and co-starring Mia Wasikowska, Jonathon Rhys-Meyers, Janet McTeer, Brendan Gleeson and Aaron Johnson.
I'm hopeful that this could be a reminder of the great power of Glenn Close. It's been too long since she's truly dominated a movie before. Remember, she was a giant in the 1980s, earning five Oscar nominations. She pretty much sat the 1990s out, and reigned on television in 2000s...it's time for a triumphant return.
Love the teaser poster.
