A Single Man

This movie was impeccably done filled with flawless Tom Ford style. I went to go see this movie over a week ago and I still cannot stop thinking about it. The story line, which was based on the 1964 novel A Single Man by Christoper Isherwood, was about a Professor named George (played by Colin Firth) grieving the loss of his long time partner (played by Matthew Goode) in 1960's California. It is esthetically one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen from the perfectly tailored suits to the Brigitte Bardot inspired hairstyles. Tom Ford definitely paid attention to detail which is standard to everything Tom Ford; the beautiful set, the granularity in the films texture, the amazing purple cigarettes, and the abundance of alcohol and drugs all contribute to making this film perfect. This was definitely one of the most handsome, graceful, smart, and beautiful films I have seen in a while and I recommend this film to anyone who appreciates Tom Ford style.

Might I just add that this was in my opinion Colin Firth's best performance ever.
