The new trailer for Roadside Attractions and director Rodrigo Garcia's drama "Albert Nobbs" is now online.

Glenn Close is Albert Nobbs, a woman dressed as a man, trying to fit in  unrecognised, in a male dominated 19th Century Irish business. Judging from the trailer and early reaction to the film, I would hardly be surprised to see Glenn Close up for acting gongs over the upcoming awards season.

The January release also stars Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Brendan Gleeson, Maria Doyle Kennedy, John Light, Janet McTeer, Pauline Collins, Mark Williams, Brenda Fricker, Bronagh Gallagher, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Emerald Fennell, Annie Starke and Serena Brabazon.
