A Single Man (2009). An English professor, one year after the sudden death of his boyfriend, is unable to cope with his typical days in 1960s Los Angeles.
This is such a beautifully made, stylish film. Tom Ford really has an eye for capturing saturated moments, for framing, for an intimacy not often realised in film. It helps that the cast is so damn good too, from Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, to the smaller, more hidden roles of Matthew Goode and Ginnifer Goodwin. The effect is a beautifully languid, tragic character study, and one definitely worth watching. 8/10.
