"Albert Nobbs", directed by Rodrigo Garcia

Movie, 2011

Story of a female Irish hotel worker passing herself as a man in order to keep in employment, encountering a load of bad behaviour until finding a soulmate in a similar position. This is a film whose serious themes could perhaps have been visited more imaginatively, as Nobbs the “man” looks curious rather than believable and the story plods rather than sparkles and so fails to really hit home. Some nice detail and poignant scenes, but all in all, a little hammy and predictable.
