A Single Man | Intriguing and Beautiful

The film is based on the eponymous novel by Christopher Isherwood. The film is directed by first time director Tom Ford and stars Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Nicholas Hoult among an incredible assemble of actors.


Synopsis: In the 1960s Los Angeles George Falconer, a depressed gay British English University professor is unable to cope with the sudden death of his boyfriend eight month ago. The film takes place in the course of a single day in the life of George Falconer.


The movie was incredible. Beautiful photography, every shots were magnificent. I liked how George Falconer’s mood was palpable with Colin Firth’s micro-expressions and the slight shift of colors in the picture. The colors went from dull to luminous very subtly. Falconer’s intentions are clear but I enjoyed how it fluctuated. It made for a more realistic tone and context. It seemed like the world was trying to help him and I loved that.
