to leave a review for Albert Nobbs
August 13, 2012
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.
