WATERVILLE — Maine International Film Festival will present Glenn Close with the annual Mid-Life Achievement Award on Sunday at the Waterville Opera House after a screening of “Albert Nobbs,” the film that earned Close her sixth Academy Award acting nomination in 2012, along with Golden Globe and SAG nominations. She starred in the title role alongside a distinguished cast that includes Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Brendan Gleeson, Brenda Fricker and Janet McTeer. Rodrigo Garcia, for whom Close starred in two previous films, directed. In addition to writing the screenplay with (Man Booker prize-winning novelist) John Banville, Close was also a producer on the film and she composed the lyrics for the Golden Globe and World Soundtrack nominated song, “Lay Your Head Down.”

Close will return to Broadway this fall for the first time in 20 years to lead a high-powered cast in “A Delicate Balance,” Edward Albee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The cast includes John Lithgow, Lindsay Duncan, Martha Plimpton, Bob Balaban and Clare Higgins.
