Mia Wasikowska and Glenn Close in Albert Nobbs

The amazingly talented Glenn Close reprises her role as a MALE Irish butler, Albert Nobbs, in the new film version directed by Rodrigo García.

Once just a play, “Albert Nobbs” is now hitting the big screen, and stars Mia Wasikowska, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Aaron Johnson. The story takes place in late 19th century Ireland where sexism is so prevalent that the main character feels she must pose as a man so she can work as a butler in Dublin’s most sophisticated hotel.

Her dream is to open her own shop, but since the idea of being a female entrepreneur in 1800s Ireland is out of the question, Nobbs must hide her true identity from the world. But her growing friendship with her young co-worker (Wasikowska) may be just what she needs to lead a more open life.

Check out the trailer below to see Glenn Close’s remarkable transformation. We’re thinking she will definitely be in the running for that coveted golden statue come award season.
