A Single Man

This past weekend I saw Tom Ford's film, A Single Man and I enjoyed every minute of it. Tom has proven himself to be quite the filmmaker and this movie is as beautiful as the clothes he designs. The film takes place in 1962 Los Angeles, and the imagery is spectacular with night time beach shots, handsome boys, and decor and fashion to die for! The filming kind of had a Juergen Teller like feel to it, which made it pretty dreamy. Ford's attention to detail is impeccable, and he achieved making even the simplest things, like a pencil sharpener, visual stimulating. The story is also wonderful ,with Colin Firth giving a heartbreaking performance as a man who is coping with the death of his lover. He is nominated for an Oscar and I think it is well deserved. Oh, and by the way check out the boy from About a Boy. He really grew out of that awkward pre teen stage and wow he is handsome!
