Trailer Debut: Albert Nobbs

Dude looks like a lady in the newly released trailer for Albert Nobbs, which stars Glenn Close as a woman who poses as a man in 19th century Ireland.

Based on George Moore’s short story, Close previously starred in a theatrical adaptation of the tale back in 1982, and has spent the past 15 years trying to bring it to the big screen.

As the trailer reminds us, Close is a 5-time Oscar nominee. No doubt she’ll be in contention to bring home the gold with this risky performance.

Albert Nobbs, co-written by Close and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, also stars Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson and Brendan Gleeson. It arrives in cinemas next year.
