This beguiling tragic-comic tale has been a labor of love for star Glenn Close, who first played the title character on stage 30 years ago, cowrote the screen adaptation with Irish novelist John Banville, and also served as a producer on the film. A nineteenth century Dubliner, Albert is the headwaiter and butler at Morrison’s Hotel. Long in the employ of the proprietor, Mrs Baker (Pauline Collins), Albert is an impeccable servant, but an odd, lonely man who keeps himself to himself. And no wonder, because he’s a she, so used to passing as the opposite sex for employment purposes that s/he is now virtually sexless. But Albert’s life isknocked sideways when fate and Mrs Baker insist on sending another man to share her bed…. Close pulls off this demanding role with virtuoso delicacy and restraint, but it’s hardly a one-man (or one-woman) show: the stellar supporting cast includes director Rodrigo Garcia’s In Treatment protégé Mia Wasikowski as a pretty maid Albert takes a shine too, Brendan Gleason as the house doctor and the great stage actress Janet McTeer in a revelatory performance as Albert’s initial foil and ultimate inspiration.
