A Single Man

A Single Man
Review: Set in Los Angelis 1962, George Falconer is a 52 year old British Professor. One year has passed since his long-time lover Jim died in a fatal car crash. He is struggling to cope with the meaning of life.
Director: Tom Ford
Actors: Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode and Nicholas Hoult
Year: 2009
Genre: Drama and Romance
Conclusion: 4/5
This is Tom Ford’s first directorial film so a very new director indeed. He also financed the film himself. I love Colin Firth’s voice. You could listen to it for hours and hours and never get tired of it. As always Colin Firth gives a fantastic performance. This is one of Colin Firth’s best films he has been in. It is always lovely to see Nicholas Hoult and he does such a good job of his role. The cinematography was very well handled with such a difficult subject matter. This film is adapted from a 1960’s novel by Christopher Isherwood. The two themes that come across strongly are ageing and morality. I found this to be a very moving film. At the Bafta Awards in 2010 this won 1 award and that was for Best Leading Actor (Colin Firth).
