    How Glenn Close's Cross-Dressing Performance In "Albert Nobbs" Makes the Movie

    "Albert Nobbs" was a longtime passion project for Glenn Close, and it's easy to see why. Adapting George Moore's 1927 short story "The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs," about a Victorian-era Dublin woman who spends decades disguised as a man to find work, Close--co-producer...
