‘Albert Nobbs’ Focus of Philosphy Film Series March 11 at FRCC in Longmont

“Albert Nobbs,” a film starring Glenn Close that explores the lowly position of women in 19th century Ireland, is the featured selection for the Philosophy Film Series March 11 at Front Range Community College.

The film, which received three Academy Award nominations, also stars Janet McTeer, Aaron Johnson, and Mia Wasikowska. The film cleverly weaves into a rich tapestry commentary on gender, homosexuality, social expectations, and themes of masculinity and femininity.

Shown in celebration of Women’s History month, the film will be framed by comments from Professor Catlyn Keenan and include a discussion afterward on the gender tropes and social mores the film calls into question.

The movie will be shown at 6 p.m. Monday, March 11, in the Community Room of the Classroom Building at the Boulder County Campus, 2121 Miller Drive, Longmont.

Admission is free. Seating is limited, with FRCC students given first priority. The movie has an R rating.
