A Single Man
This Friday I think you should all enjoy some quality drama, and with that in mind I hereby recommend to you the glorious sadness that is A Single Man (2009).
The story begins when George (Colin Firth) gets a phone call that his partner of 16 years has died in a car accident. As this is the USA in the 60s, George is not invited to the funeral and is left dealing with his loss alone. The viewer follows him through one day, a week later, where plans and friendships are made and remade, and several perspectives of life is encountered. Intertwined with this are memories of the time George and his boyfriend spent together.
The film is directed by Tom Ford, which ensures that everything is classy, stylish and beautiful, and includes such wonderful actors as Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Nicholas Hoult.
You really need to see this.
