Albert Nobbs - Review & Trailer

I was selected to be a VIP at the movie premier of Glen Close's new movie Albert Nobbs. I didn't really know much about the movie when i accepted the invite so i asked a friend of mine to come along. The movie lends a good mix of emotions. I found myself laughing and crying and wanting to knock a girl out. lol

The movie is set in the 19th century, where work and times are hard. Glen Close dresses as a man to obtain employment as a butler in Dublin, Ireland but that's not really what the movie is about. As the movie unfolds you learn of why she decides to dress like a man and work as a butler.

Close had many talented actors & actresses to accompany her in this extraordinary movie that took over 15 years to bring to the big screen. Ever since she first stared as Albert Nobbs on Broadway she dreamt of bringing it to Hollywood. I would say the wait was well worth it.

Many spectators were to focused on the sexual orientation of the movie to true connect and be enlightened by this film. But i would say if your willing to open your mind and be accepting you will be blown away by this film. Defiantly get your popcorn and tissues ready.

On a side not i would like to thank swaylo, and plaza Frontenac for the premier opportunity. The whole experience is one that will not be forgotten. My guest and I were treated as VIP and were seated in the press section. The staff was very attentive and professional. I hope this is the first of many.
