The official word:

Consumers looking to view one of the best performances of the year will have a chance to see Glenn Close in the celebrated three-time Oscar® nominee Albert Nobbs for a limited two week engagement on Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View beginning April 10th through April 24th. The sneak peek will come one month ahead of the film’s debut on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital Download May 15th.


The acclaimed drama stars six-time Oscar® nominee* Glenn Close, who gives a “powerhouse performance” (New York Post).  An impressive supporting cast includes two-time Academy Award® nominee** Janet McTeer, along with Mia Wasikowska (The Kids 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 received three total Academy Award® nods for Close, McTeer and Best Achievement in Makeup.  The film also earned multiple Golden Globe® nominations (for Close, McTeer and Best Original Song for "Lay Your Head Down”).

A man with a secret.  A woman with a dream.  In order to survive in 19th century Ireland, a woman must live and work as a man.  But, some thirty years after first donning men’s clothing to fit into her surroundings, Albert Nobbs (Close), finds herself trapped inside a prison of her own making.
