Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, A Single Man, is the story of George Falconer, a 52 year old British college professor (Colin Firth) who is struggling to find the meaning to his life after the death of his long term partner, Jim (Matthew Goode).

George dwells on the past and cannot see his future as we follow him through a single day, where a series of events and encounters ultimately leads him to decide if there is meaning to life after Jim. George is consoled by his closest friend Charley (Julianne Moore), a 48 year old beauty who is wrestling with her own questions about the future. A young student of George's, Kenny (Nicholas Hoult), who is coming to terms with his true nature, stalks George as he feels in him a kindred spirit.

A Single Man is a romantic tale of love interrupted, the isolation that is an inherent part of the human condition, and ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.

Winner of the BAFTA Award for Leading Actor - Colin Firth.

Despite the Rave reviews and Colin Firths brilliant performance, I didnt connect with this movie.
It was Gorgeously Shot and well Directed. Julianne Moore gave another good performance
But it just lacked that extra oomph for me. Maybe it has undertones that I didnt understand or fully appreciate.

 Captivating Little Gem!

Good actors will make you believe - great actors will make you feel. Based on the wonderful story by Christopher Isherwood, this is a deeply felt & heartwarming, life reaffirming movie, that reaches out & grabs you from the first moment. It takes us on the journey of one man's love for another. Colin Firth's performances is a career best with a superlative portrayal of grief. love lost, joy, pain, anguish...and young Nicholas Hoult from CH4's 'Skins' is a revalation - both are electrifying when they share the screen together. This reaches out & touches a part in all of us & you feel what this man feels. Great movie, beautifully filmed & photograped with an exemplary BD transfer. The picture can & deliberately does, change from washed out & drab, to vivid blooming colour & incredably sharp detail - this was Director's: Tom Fords intention. grain is there in minor quantity, but gives the movie a wonderful film -like glow. Perfect attention to early 1960's Los Angeles period detail only adds to a great movie experience, complimented by a fantastic musical score delivered through rich & immersive DTS HD Master Audio. Can't really fault this underrated masterpiece, that takes its rightful place in this movie lover's blu-ray collection. Sublime!!!

Regrettably I caught this film after the Oscar race was over but I was very glad that I finally caught this immaculately filmed and perfectly acted drama from fashion designer turned director Tom Ford and starring Colin Firth.

Middle aged college professor George Falconer is struggling with life in the wake of the death of his partner of 16 years Jim (played in flashbacks by Matthew Goode). So, one day in 1962 he decides that this day will be different. As we follow him, through his morning routine, classroom lectures and dinner with his closest friend Charley (a superb Julianne Moore) his day becomes a journey.................but towards what, you'll have to watch the film to find out.

Firth is in every scene and his performance is nothing short of spellbinding (from the scene in which he wordlessly plays out the grief after being told of his lover's death to his evening with Charley) and dominates the film, more than earning his Oscar nomination. Beautifully staged and designed by perfectionist Ford - who clearly knew just what he wanted to accomplish - the recreation of 1962 is faultless and Ford's use of colour (though mildly obvious) nonetheless achieves the effect intended. With support from Goode and Nicholas Hoult as a young student this is a film to savour again and again.

 Great movie.
