A Single Man

A day in 1962. Colin Firth, Professor of English at a college in Los Angeles is grieving the loss of his gay lover some time earlier. A meticulous man, we see his preparations for the day and his encounters with students, a rent boy and his long time female friend Julianne Moore.

'A Single Man', directed by Fashion Designer, Tom Ford, is itself an exercise in design. Every sequence is highly choreographed. This is the sort of style over narrative that the French often bring to their films.

Colin Firth dominates in a performance that deservedly won him an Acadeny Award nomination.


  1. I really want to see this. It's on my netflix queue.

  2. Waiting for it to appear in France, at least on the satellite tv packages. I probably won't see it in theatre.
