Glenn Close in first “Albert Nobbs” poster – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Albert Nobbs” first charmed me at the Toronto International Film Festival. It has been winning over crowds ever since.

Lead actress (and five-time Oscar nominee) Glenn Close has been working the festival circuit, collecting trophies for her subtle, heartbreaking work as Albert, a woman forced to live as a man in 19th century Ireland just so she can maintain a job. It’s my belief Close will get in to the Best Actress race this year for her deft portrayal of Nobbs. And if there’s justice, Rodrigo Garcia’s excellent film will be allowed to compete in other categories, as well.

A poster for “Albert Nobbs” has been posted over at EW.com. Like the film, it is stately, handsome, and striking. Check it out below:

The film will receive a limited release on Dec. 21 before opening wider in 2012. Do see it once it reaches you.
