Glenn Close played the character Albert Nobbs on stage in the early 1980s and has work for many years since to bring the story to the screen.

Albert Nobbs is an 18th century Irish woman who dresses as a man to make a living as a waiter.  Albert Nobbs is an engrossing, moving, and ultimate gentle story about the complexities of identity and vagaries of humanity.

Close gives a noteworthy performance (as does Janet McTeer) and not only stars as Mr. Nobbs but also produced and co-wrote the film.
