A Single Man

© The Weinstein Company, 2009

There should be an Oscar for best first time directing and Tom Ford should have won it in 2009 for this unbelievably sensitive and beyond lovely portrayal of a closeted, gay English professor grieving the loss of his partner in 1960’s Los Angeles. From the close-up of the rose outside Julianne Moores’ character’s stunning house, to the to the downy sweater on the young, baby chick-like student Colin Firth spends an evening with – every tactile and reserved nuance of this movie is drop dead gorgeous!
