Believe it or not, this stately gentleman is actually Glenn Close. This photo is from her new film, Albert Nobbs, the story of an Englishwoman in the 1800s who dressed as a man to get a job as a butler. She's been working on making this passion project a reality for the last 10 years. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson also star. Sounds like an all-star cast and by the looks of the trailer (check it out here) the film looks to be worthy of their talent.
