Review: A SINGLE MAN

This. Film. Is. Awesome. Just. Go. See. It.

A Single Man is about a day in the life of George Falconer (excellently played by Colin Firth) as he goes about his routine as a college professor while reminiscing about his happy life with his lover (the oh so sexy Matthew Goode) and realizing how empty it has been since his death. And the man has a plan.

Tom Ford's highly-stylized directorial debut may look very polished and almost too handsome. But make no mistake ... this film is quite heartfelt and dripping with honest and raw emotions. It's a touching film about love and coping with loss. Look for Julianne Moore's scene-stealing role as the resident fag hag.

You can still catch the film at the Little Theatre.

Oh, I loved it too! Talk about stylized! Was it ever. I felt like I was back in the 60's as I watched this story unfold. This would have been a wonderful film for our ImageOut Festival, but the timing was all wrong. I highly recommend this beautifully done movie.
