Adding another nod in the direction of a best actress Oscar nomination, Glenn Close won best actress at the recently wrapped Tokyo International Film Festival for her gender-bending role in Rodrigo Garcia's period drama Albert Nobbs.

Thompson on Hollywood

The five-time nominated Close, who wrote, starred, and produced Albert Nobbs, has been intertwined with the story of Albert Nobbs for the past 30 years. In the 1980s, Close starred in a play based on the story of the cross-dressing Englishwoman in 19th-century Dublin, where the movie was filmed. Both the Toronto Film Festival and Telluride chose Albert Nobbs as one of their official selections. (More details are in our Close interview; trailer posted below.)

Other films honored at the Tokyo festival include Play (Sweden, Denmark, France), A Better Life (France), and Detachment (US).
