A Single Man

Tom Ford‘s debut film “A Single Man” is certainly one of the most beautifully shot and styled movies I have seen. This is not surprising given that the director is a fashion designer and Mad Men production designer Dan Bishop worked on creating the film’s 1960’s time period with meticulous detail.  All the characters are impeccably dressed.

Adapted from a 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, the narrative is a slow and sometimes painful account of an English professor (played by Colin Firth) grieving the death of his partner Jim who died in a car accident. It also features a sterling performance by Julianne Moore. The plot may be a little tortured but its well worth a watch.
