Glenn Close as ALBERT NOBBS

From the Landmark website: "Best Actress nominee Glenn Close stars in this emotional and thought-provoking tale of a woman forced to live as a man, Albert Nobbs, in order to work and survive in 19th century Ireland. After thirty years of keeping up the charade, a new love threatens to destroy everything she's worked so hard to build, and she finds herself trapped in a prison of her own making. Mia Wasikowska (Helen), Aaron Johnson (Joe) and Brendan Gleeson (Dr. Holloran) join a prestigious, international cast that includes Best Supporting Actress nominee Janet McTeer, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Brenda Fricker and Pauline Collins. Rodrigo Garcia directs from a script that Glenn Close, along with Man Booker prize-winning novelist John Banville and Gabriella Prekop, adapted from a short story by Irish author George Moore."

The film starts at 7:05 in the upstairs theater, so we will meet at the top of the stairs at 6:45 and go into the theater 5 to 10 minutes before showtime.  If you have trouble finding us, call my cell phone.  Once the end credits have finished, we will head to Roy Street Coffee and Tea for a post-movie discussion.

    As Close fans of "Damages" (she is so evil!!) we enjoyed her 180 degrees different performance as Albert. Oscar? She's due, y'know.

    The movie was very good, as all of the main characters were fleshed out and three dimensional, the acting was great, and the writing was solid. Plus, we had a great discussion after the film was over, even if most of it wasn't about the film! Thanks for coming, everyone :-)
