Albert Nobbs (2011)

Directed by: Rodrigo Garcia
Country: USA/UK

Plot: Albert Nobbs struggles to survive in late 19th century Ireland, where women aren't encouraged to be independent.
Review: Albert Nobbs wasn’t much a sympathetic character. The good performance by Glenn Close, who also wrote the screenplay, didn’t put this movie on top of my preferences. The story isn’t bad. Actually, it has something to say about women’s independence in 19th century’s Ireland, but the way it does isn’t so absorbing or emotional enough to avoid some indifference. The characterization of Mr.Nobbs (Glenn Colse) was good, while the one from the painter Hubert Page (Janet McTeer) didn't convince me. Not powerful enough.
Relevant awards: Best actress (Tokyo); sebastain prize (San Sebastian).
