Film 3: Albert Nobbs (2011) Zoom Discussion to start: 7:30 PM
Albert Nobbs is a woman in 19th century Ireland who dresses as a man in order to escape the oppression women of that era faced. Becoming a butler in an attractive Dublin hotel seems to be an answer to one part of her dilemma but she discovers that life and relationships are poised to throw her into complicated and painful circumstances. Staying true to oneself takes on a different set of meanings in this story of identity, fear, and possibility. Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs) was nominated for best actress and Janet McTeer (Hubert Page) was nominated as best supporting actress.
