Albert Nobbs (Close), butler at a Dublin hotel, has a secret. He’s a woman. Albert’s dream is to open a tobacco shop. But a chance meeting with another woman living as a man (McTeer) opens new possibilities to Albert and he begins a naive courtship of young maid Helen (Wasikowska).
Not only sad, sad, sad but dreary and unpleasant, peopled with largely unsympathetic characters but for McTeer, who is great.
