From the mezmerizing period piece to the Victorian social restrictions and it's hypocracy with all the elegant trappings of the privileged served by the underprivleged, I found all aspects of this film to be enthralling and fascinating. The children ************** ogled the character Albert Nobbs with apparent recognition of his true gender as well as the suspicious looks ascance at Hubert later

Entertaining in the oddest way. A slice of life in England in the very early 1800s with a LGBT message.

The acting is brilliant but I seriously question the historic reality of this film. It is just another - not so thinly vailed - attempt to legitimize lesbianism.

Glenn Close was amazing and so believable in her role as a tortured sole. The ease at which she is able to go through life as a man, unrealized by others, made me wonder how often men and or women had to resort to such ends in order to survive. Though terribly sad, the end actually held out a strand of hope.

Great story based on women's history in the 19th century. Glenn Close is a marvelous actor who displays great dramatic ability in this role as well a sympathetic approach to the characters.
