Glenn Close as Albert Nobbs
‘Albert Nobbs’ World Premiere is to be held at Toronto Film Festival this September. Directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Nine Lives, Six Feet Under), the feature film was shot in Dublin in December 2010 and January 2011 and co-produced by Alan Moloney (Breakfast on Pluto) of Dublin based Parallel Films.

The feature stars five time Oscar Nominated actress Glenn Close (Dangerous Liaisons, Mars Attacks) in the title role, as a woman in 19th century Ireland who disguises herself as a man in order to survive. But her gender deception leads to an unusual love triangle.

Glenn Close co-wrote ‘Albert Nobbs’ along with author John Banville (The Sea), and is also producing the project alongside Julie Lynn (The Jane Austen Book Club), Bonnie Curtis (Saving Private Ryan) and Alan Moloney of Parallel Films (Intermission). The film boasts an all-star cast featuring Janet McTeer (Tideland), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy), Brendan Gleeson (The Guard), Brenda Fricker (A Time To Kill) and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (Match Point).

The Tornoto Film Festival will also show Irish actor Michael Fassbender on screen in David Cronenberg’s ‘A Dangerous Method’ (US premiere) and Steve McQueen’s ‘Shame’. Roscommon actor Chris O’Dowd can be seen reunited on screen with his ‘Bridesmaids’ co-stars Jon Hamm, Kirsten Wigg and Maya Rudolph for the world premiere of ‘Friends with Kids’.

The festival will open with Davis Guggenheim’s U2 documentary ‘From the Sky Down’. The documentary explores how the band endured and thrived throughout their career. It is the first time in the festival’s 36-year history that it has opened with a documentary.

The 36th Toronto International Film Festival will take place from September 8th-18th 2011 in Ontario, Canada. For more information visit www.tiff.net/THEFESTIVAL.
