Amanda Seyfried Drags it up in Albert Nobbs

Amanda Seyfried stars in Albert Nobbs. Nobbs is a story about a woman who pretends to be a man in order to work. Set in Ireland in the 19th century, this drama, directed by Rodrigo Garcia, should be great! Period piece + drag + fighting for women's rights! YAAHH!

It's such an original concept. WOW! Chick dresses as a dude to do what she loves. It's almost never been done before. Except for She's the Man (2006) and Mulan (1998)... Yentl (1983), Victor Victoria (1982), Connie and Carla (2004), Pitch Black(2000), Shakespeare in Love (1998)... Ok, so maybe it has been done. Either way we loooove the drag. Women in drag, men in drag. We don't care. We'll take it.

Let the gender-bending begin in 2011!

Actually, Connie and Carla was about chicks dressing as dudes dressing as chicks...but I'll still give it to you! :P

I do also enjoy the flicks where men dress as women...they are hilarious!
