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.
