    Re: Albert Nobbs- After posing as a male butler in a posh 19th-century hotel for years, a woman falls for a handsome painter and reconsiders her charade.

    I realize you probably did not want to copy the Netflix description verbatim, but when you change a description without actually watching the movie “a woman falls for a handsome painter”, you are given an incorrect description.

  • It’s Ralph Macchio, not Macchiato. :p Someone need coffee?
