Famous for her role as a pyscho-stalker in Fatal Attraction, and over more recent years, as a sordid-scheming-attorney in Damages, there's no doubt that 5-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close has shown over and again that she belongs to a very special league of actresses.
Like Meryl Streep, Close has that special and very rare ability to continually surprise -- in other words, she keeps out-doing herself; and there's no question that she's one of a handful of special Hollywood actresses that are truly timeless and absolutely intrepid.
And her latest film, Albert Nobbs, is yet another testament to her craft and evolution. The period piece is centered around Close's role as a woman posing and living as a man in Ireland, circa 1800s -- certainly a first for Close.
Opening today in select theaters in the United States, this latest addition to Close's oeuvre has largely been reviewed as a game-changer for the actress -- but not only as an actress, also as a producer. Indeed, Close modified the script, produced the film (with her own funds), and of course, she is the principal star of the film -- to say she's delivered something 'impressive' would be a vast understatement.
