Movie review: Albert Nobbs

Watched a period drama about a woman who spent most of her life pretending to be a man to get by in the late 19th century Britain. I recommend it. The acting was good and carried the film, but the lack of predictability of the story was also a plus. Not Hollywood. Good lighting design, one of the few films out there with the atmosphere of candle and kerosine light is shown realistically. Costume design used purposefully to show character. The sets looked a bit cramped and sterile, but no obvious anachronisms jumped out at me. Not a cheery movie but definitely well-made.
