Albert Nobbs

Synopsis: In 19th century Dublin, Albert Nobbs, an eccentric man in the latter part of middle age, works as a waiter in Morrison's Hotel run by the stingy and controlling Marge Baker. Albert is hard working and saves his money so that one day he will be able to eke out a better life for himself by owning his own business rather than work at the hotel. Beyond his work colleagues, he is all alone in the world. One day, a man named Hubert Page is hired by Mrs. Baker to paint one of the rooms in the hotel. She forces Hubert to share Albert's bed for the one night he is required to stay to complete the work, much to Albert's horror. Hubert discovers the reason Albert did not want to share a room with him. But rather than the issue being a problem, Hubert shows Albert that he can follow a slightly different life path than the one he envisioned for himself - one closer to the life that Hubert leads with his wife Cathleen - which includes getting married and having a wife to support him emotionally.

- Who?

What's-his-name, the Viscount.

Not to mention rich,

young and handsome,

with money and land.

That's the kind of man I want.

I'll wear my new blouse

tonight and give him an eyeful.

Would you care for a tasty breast

of duck, my lord?

Pink and succulent,

just the way you like it.

That's right, lower yourself.

The likes of him will only take

advantage of a girl

and then leave her high and dry.

High, maybe, but I wouldn't say dry.

Now, girls, stop this tittle-tattling

and just get on

with your breakfast, please.

It's no trouble at all, mind you.

- Morning, all.

- Good morning.

Somebody didn't bring me

my wake-up cuppa.


I'll have to lodge a complaint

with Mrs. Baker.

Morning, Nobbs.


Did you know we have

a lord and lady staying?

Is that so?

What do you think, any chance?

I'm sorry, there's nothing here.

I was two years in the Ardlane.

- Maybe you should have stayed there.

- Well, is there any...?

- Good morning, Nobbs.

- Hello, Nobbs.

Mistress Milly. Master George.

Bunny, breakfast.

Shall we wake the girls?

That hat's very important.

Be careful with that.

Katie, get those sheets

nice and clean, good girl.

Hey, are you the fella

for the boiler for us?

I'm a boiler man.

Well, you certainly took

your sweet time getting here.

Mrs. Baker is waiting inside.

Come on inside. Follow me.

Mrs. Baker, ma'am.

Albert, Mr. Hubert Page

is working in the morning

and he's come over

and asked us for a bed

so I've told him he can muddle in

with you for one night.

With... With me, ma'am?

Yes, Mr. Nobbs. With you.

- But...

- What?

What are you trying to say?

My bed is full of lumps.

Full of lumps?

Your bed was re-picked

and buttoned just six months ago.

What are you talking about?

So it was, ma'am, so it was.
