An impressive supporting cast includes two-time Academy Award® nominee** Janet McTeer, along with Mia Wasikowska (TheKids Are All Right), Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Showtime's "The Tudors"). Directed "with grit and grace" (Rolling Stone) by Rodrigo Garcia (Mother and Child), the film is based on the novella by Irish author George Moore and features a story by Istvan Szabo and screenplay by Gabriella Prekop, John Banville and Glenn Close. A critical favorite of the year, Albert Nobbs alsoearned multiple Golden Globe® nominations (for Close, McTeer and Best Original Song for "Lay Your Head Down"), in addition to its three Academy Award® nods for Close, McTeer and Best Achievement in Makeup.
