Albert Nobbs
Genre Drama
 
Review:

Glenn Close garnered an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Albert Nobbs, a butler leading a secretive life of servitude in the hope of opening a tobacco shoppe in Dublin. While beautifully filmed and spurred on by an intriguing premise and great production values, Albert Nobbs lacks focus and leans too heavily on the ensemble's collective talent.

The concept would have possibly worked better if they had veiled it in Gothic horror like Jane Eyre (2011) or applied more claustrophobic and voyeuristic intensity as experienced in Chilean domestic drama, The MaidClose's performance is commendable, but casting a well-known actress leaves very few surprises in this curious, yet stilted drama.
