The Sedona International Film Festival presents a “Festival Flashback” of “Albert Nobbs” on Thursday, May 27 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“Albert Nobbs” received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Actress for Glenn Close, Best Supporting Actress for Janet McTeer and Best Achievement in Makeup. The actresses also received Golden Globe nominations in the same categories, and the film garnered a third Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song.
Multiple Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated actress Glenn Close stars in this emotional and thought-provoking tale. “Albert Nobbs” boasts an all-star ensemble supporting cast, including Mia Wasikowska, Janet McTeer, Aaron Johnson, Brendan Gleeson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
In 19th-century Ireland, painfully shy butler Albert Nobbs (Glenn Close) hides an incredible secret: He is really a she. Terrified that someone will discover her identity, Albert keeps a very low profile, until the arrival of Hubert Page (Janet McTeer) registers a sea change in Albert’s life.
Hubert is also secretly a woman and has managed to find a partner who helps her maintain her masquerade. Hoping to find a similar arrangement, Albert begins wooing a hotel maid (Mia Wasikowska).
After 30 years of keeping up the charade, this new love threatens to destroy everything she’s worked so hard to build.
