– 4 out of 5 stars

Glenn Close plays Albert Nobbs, a woman living as a man working as a hotel waiter in 19th century Ireland, where jobs for women were hard to find. His life is shaken when a painter, Hubert Page, arrives at the hotel and gives Nobbs a new perspective on life and his future.

Nobbs certainly has a tough time growing up and it’s even tougher when she’s been a man for so long, she doesn’t remember her real name.┬áThe ending was almost heartbreaking although you could predict it the moment it happened. Well, some people just have a tougher life to live.
