About the Movie
Nominated for 3 Academy Awards®, this powerful and poignant film stars Glenn Close as a woman who poses as a man in order to work and survive in repressive 19th century Ireland. Some thirty years after donning men's clothing, "Albert" must find a way to free herself from a prison of her own making in this elegantly told dramatic tale featuring a talented international cast that includes Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Janet McTeer, Brenda Fricke, and Pauline Collins.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's a career-crowning role for Glenn Close. Too bad the film is such a drag.
Rotten: What you feel, watching Close, is not that you are watching gender being bent into new, absorbing shapes but that you might as well have stayed home and leafed through a book on Magritte.
Fresh: [A] funny, sorrowful, richly layered and tremendously moving film.
Fresh: [It] sneaks up on the audience with the quiet discretion of the enigmatic protagonist at its center. And, like him, it contains multitudes beneath its prim surface.
This movie is ridiculous.
But... better than "The Iron Lady" story & acting wise.
Tis more of a horrible representation of a comedy inspired by transexual events. But it had me rolling out of my chair with laughter.
Glenn Close is amazing, don't get me wrong. This movie was just.... odd.
such a handsome woman
I agree; this movie was odd. Interesting but odd.
