Should we just hand Glenn Close the Academy Award now?
This veteran actress is receiving a great deal of buzz for her upcoming role in Albert Nobbs and it's easy to see why, considering she portrays a woman struggling to succeed in late 19th century Ireland... by pretending to be a man.
Watch the official trailer below, as Close's Albert poses as a butler inside Dublin's most posh hotel and then seeks an escape from the lie she's been living. A period, cross-dressing piece that involves the use of an accent? Safe to say this is Oscar material for sure.
