// Tom Ford’s directorial debut is A Single Man, a heartbreaking portrayal of a man who loses himself after the loss of his longtime partner. Based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood, and production designed by the same team as Mad Men, the film gives voice to fashion designer Ford’s inspiring creation.
Nominated for Best Actor in a motion picture at the Oscars, Colin Firth shines. Decked out in Tom Ford head to toe, he has never been more attractive. The film is visually stunning. The film stock used to capture the grainy yet poetic frames isn’t even made anymore.
The role of Jim, the dead lover (shown only in flashbacks and dream sequences) is played brilliantly by Matthew Goode, and Kenny, played by Nicholas Hoult (of Skin‘s fame) seduces the audience with his well learned American accent.
See it. Now.
