I watched the movie for the second time at home because I felt I was missing something during the first showing. I am so glad I watched it again. The story is heart-breaking, the acting is superb, and I felt as if I was taken back to Ireland in the bleak 1800s'. If a girl has no father, brother, or husband her only choices to survive were prostitution or becoming kitchen help with no chance to make a better life for herself. After Albert experienced physical trauma as a young teen, she makes a heroic choice to present herself as a man in order to survive and obtain gainful employment. As a very naive person, she did not understand the world and emotionally she closeted herself completely so her impersonation was not uncovered. The transformation of Miss Close into Mr. Nobbs is worthy of praise. I recommend those who really "get" the art of movies give this movie another try. I think it is great.

She finds he is involved with an older woman and insinuates herself into the woman's life, making herself indispensible. However, when the object of her obsession begins to notice her, she reacts in an unexpected way, leaving one to question her mental stability. A quiet, introspective piece. Voyuerism and deception get your attention, and a distinct lack of courage on the part of the young woman make this a little puzzling. But, that said, there was enough to keep this viewer interested. One wonders at the end what shards of her life are left for her to reassemble and whether she will ever find whatever it is she is looking for.
