Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
Synopsis: Making one’s way in life is hard enough in 19th century Ireland, but to do so as a single woman is almost impossible. That is why Albert Nobbs (Glen Close) has been posing as a man for the last 30 years. But her/his quiet working life gets shaken up with the arrival of a homeless painter (Janet McTeer), a young parlor maid (Mia Wasikowska), and a handsome handyman (Aaron Johnson).
