Albert Nobbs Reviews

Sky Movies

Resolutely downbeat, this tale of Victorian gender-bendering scores thanks to skilful performances, particularly from Close and McTeer, and a exhaustive attention to period detail.

Daily Express

It's finely acted (both Close and McTeer were Oscar nominated) and McTeer brings some welcome heart and humour.

Watchable drama enlivened by strong performances from both Glenn Close and Janet McTeer, though the story loses its way in the second half and fails to deliver the required emotional punch.

The grim, grey-hued result is about as far from contemporary drag chic as it's possible to get - appropriate for the subject matter, perhaps, but hardly the stuff of satisfying cinema.

This is a sad, sweet little film; well acted, and capable of striking a universal chord. After all, who doesn't use some level of impersonation in order to get by?

Empire Magazine

Not only sad, sad, sad but dreary and unpleasant, peopled with largely unsympathetic characters but for McTeer, who is great.

While it's just the sort of film Hollywood likes to embrace, one can only imagine the horrific hash a studio would've made of telling this sensitively told tale.

Good performances, but it's difficult to give two hoots about Close's passion project when the story remains as pinched and hermetic as poor little Albert Nobbs himself.

Even with a captivating, Oscar-nominated performance by the star, the servant remains inscrutable beneath that starched collar.

Close's craft raises the saddest of stories to the level of art.

Albert Nobbs is more a parable than a person, and Albert Nobbs plays out more closely to a fable than an authentic tale.

The film surrounding the performance is not always as strong, but the centre holds, and magnificently so.

This strange film about a woman pretending to be a man in 19th Century Ireland has some surprising twists and turns in it and some very good performances.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

That the film manages to be touching without being maudlin, and to be smart without being mean-spirited, is perhaps what really seals the deal.

Albert is at the heart of it all and we see her through her own prism of vulnerability, resulting in a very human story about the search for love, acceptance and understanding of the self.

Monsters and Critics

Bright, entertaining and touching, this re-uniting of collaborators sports lush sets and costumery and Oscar level acting by several of the cast.

Close's performance is flawless, so much so that it's possible that she could have passed to an audience not expecting to see her in the role
