The obscenely charismatic Colin Firth is on top form here as a gay university lecturer in the '60s trying to deal with the death of his partner, but the surprise MVP here is Tom Ford, fashion designer and, now, talented director. His vision of sun-blasted Los Angeles is uniquely gorgeous and he gets great performances from everyone. \r\n\r\nI can't say that "A Single Man" will radically alter your worldview but it's a poignant and sorrowful drama and well worth a watch. Also it made me even more in love with Julianne Moore, so there's that.
