Director: Rodrigo Garcia
Albert Nobbs, the film starring Glenn Close in the shoes of a man. Yes, the solid Hollywood actress has seen fit to transfer the character she played in the theater since 1982 with success on the big screen. The result? An even more blatant, that brought her to receive an Oscar nomination as Best Actress, in defiance of another queen transformisms, Meryl Streep.
Who is Albert Nobbs? The “gentleman” in question is a distinguished servant of a luxury hotel in Dublin, estimated by customers for its reliability. Reserved and respectful, Albert does his job with zeal and skill, not letting emotions leaked details of his ice-blue eyes. Emotions that actually exist, and that the protagonist feels strong and clear: under clothing for men, in fact, hides a woman (of which you will not know the name) not to end up the victim of a misogynistic society (he was an illegitimate child) dresses as a man. Fate, however, who discovers he does not share alone: even the painter of the hotel is a woman (the actress Janet McTeer, another candidate to the statuette).
Glenn Close goes down in part to perfection, bringing to film the essence of the novel by George Moore which it is based: a woman forced to give up his identity. Choice that will bring consequences that are difficult to handle for a lifetime. The most important? The emotional solitude. In fact, Albert tip eyes on the young waitress Mia Wasikowska, but things do not go according to plan. A must watch movie!
