Albert Nobbs – Movie Reviews – Rotten Tomatoes
Sep 05, Katia M. When she meets a painter and decorator, Hugo Page, Albert develops a new ambition, to meet someone to love and be loved in return. A nameless narrator sits with his or her, now that I think about it friend Nobbs. The exception is the painter Hubert, another woman masquerading as a man, whose existence requires a suspension of disbelief I was a bit too unwilling to make.
I wrote the following at my group: Albert Nobss is a gender-bending examination of sexuality from the early-twentieth century, with discussions of everything from same-sex cohabitation to polygamy, but it also borders on the absurd, as if Moore were piling on improbable scenarios for shock value. This novel was a confusing tale of a woman living her life as a man during a time when woman were not able to find a job to provide them with a suitable wage.
I highly recommend both the book and the movie. Aside from the problem with the digital version, this short, page novella is a nice, easy, and fast read.

Je ne m’y suis pas divertie une seule seconde One day she confides her secret to another man, a painter named Mr. At pages, the story moves very quickly, a great difference to the gentle pace of vids film. With its stifling form and heavy reliance on all to convenient coincidence, Albert Nobbs reads as a story that would do quite well as either a play or a film.
This is a story where after going for walks in the evening was a viable precursor to a marriage proposal. With a foreword by Glenn Close. Then you have the narrator, who was maybe a lawyer, speaking to an ‘Alec’? Close is eloquent and shows insight into the character whom she embodied and who it seems had some influence over her.
Even more tragic, however, is the fact that Albert had to dress up as a man just to get liveable wages at all.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. The piece worked very well as a short and I was surprised by its depth of feeling and expression.
Moore’s rough sketch does provide a framework with wealthy potential for someone willing to delve more deeply into the character’s possibilities albedt give Albert’s tragedy a certain amount of visual splendor. Mar 01, Hollowspine rated it really liked it. Really a very sad story of a woman living as a man in the early 20th century Dublin.
