After a life of hard graft, retirement isn't at all what Albert Nobbs had expected.
Instead of relaxing and taking things at a leisurely pace, the curmudgeonly Albert finds himself bored and nagged by his wife, Connie. But life throws Albert a challenge he could never expect: Connie is killed in a road accident and his world is suddenly turned upside down. He struggles to carry on.
Until, that is, until Connie returns as a ghost.
She sets about organising a fulfilling retirement for Albert - including matchmaking with her best friend, Rose. Despite Albert's protestations, he gradually learns to overcome his reluctance and sees life in a new light. He and Connie are to continue their journeys in different directions.
Albert Nobbs charms and delights. It is painful and funny in equal measure.
