Glenn Close Plays A 19th Century Cross-Dressing Woman In New Film Albert Nobbs

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayFilm Flickers

Move aside every other actress ever. Glenn Close is about to steal your Oscar next year.

In the new trailer for her upcoming film Albert Nobbs, co-starring Mia Wasikowska, the Academy Award five-time nominee plays a cross-dressing woman who works as a male butler in 19th century Ireland.

When asked about the possibility of being nominated again, Glenn said:

"It would be wonderful to be nominated. It has been a long time."

She might as well prepare her speech now because this looks incredible.

    Glenn and Meryl will go head to head this year…. Saw this film premier at the Toronto Film Festival and Glenn is absolutely mesmorizing….it is so great to see her back on the silver screen… and don't be surprised if she gets a double nomination as a co-writer for best adapted screenplay.

    FINALLY!!! An original movie with a seasoned actress as the lead and I'll bet nothing blows up in this movie either, go Glenn! Can't wait to see it.

    I actually teared up! The way she portrays her characters pain in not being able to really be a man is fantastic! The character is almost pure and child like. I hope she wins!!

    This looks like a great film. Oscar nominee predictions: Glenn Close, Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan…who else?

    The accents in that film are terrible! They are so inncacurate, and most of them are either made up accents or accents from all different parts of the country which makes the acting look very lazy, as if they thought no one would notice..

    It's a shame because it looks like a good film. Why couldn't they just cast Irish actors in this film to play Irish people? No problem with Glenn Close's accent, it's quite good and she's a good actor but Mia Wasikowska's accent is ridiculous.
