Gentle, Heartwarming Story

on 5/18/2012

When I first came across this movie, I was wary of watching it. I thought there was a good chance that it would capitalize on "sensationalism" and not really engage my attention. However, it had a stellar cast and I'll see anything that Meryl Streep does. If I didn't like it I could turn it off....so I took a chance. This was one of the most powerful pieces I've ever had the priviledge to view. Not only does it paint a moving and realistic portrayal of life for women in one of the most difficult times for our sex. It goes deeper than that. It portrays the triumph of the human spirit that only comes through adversity, faith, friendship, betrayal, and all that life dishes out...in any age or time. See it if you have a heart and you've lived. If you dont and haven't, don't waste your time or theirs. Everyone in this movie created MORE than a work of art. Read More

Editors Note
Note Glenn Close co-wrote and stars in this period drama based on the short story THE SINGULAR LIFE OF ALBERT NOBBS by author George Moore, centering on the experiences of a 19th century Irish woman who poses as a man in order to work as a butler at an opulent Dublin hotel for the upper class. Maintaining her elaborate ruse over the course of two decades, Albert (Close) suddenly finds her dedication to the role challenged by the unexpected arrival of a painter who turns out to understand Albert better than anyone she could have imagined. Meanwhile, Albert finds her attempts to help pretty hotel maid Helen (Mia Wasikowska) thwarted when Helen becomes enamored with a charming but callous handyman (Aaron Johnson). ALBERT NOBBS played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
