It has been over two decades since Glenn Close was Hollywood's hottest actress (Jagged Edge, Fatal Attraction), and she has since moved on to conquer Broadway (Sunset Boulevard) and television (Damages). But now she's back in a big way with the film adaptation of Albert Nobbs, a short story from irish novelist George Moore.
Walking the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival Sunday night, Close said she was "thrilled and very emotional" to bring the story of an Englishwoman who disguises herself as a man in order to work as a butler in 19th century Ireland. Close said it took her 15 years to bring what she calld "her dream come true" to the big screen. Critics have been very kind and the Oscar buzz has started.
