Editor's Note
George Falconer (Colin Firth) feels lost. Not only is he still grieving the death of his longtime companion, Jim (Matthew Goode), but he's also a Brit teaching English at a California college. He's so distraught with heartbreak that he's decided to kill himself, and proceeds to get all his affairs in order while carrying on with what otherwise would be a normal day. He gives an unusually forceful lecture to his class, revealing enough that a perceptive student, Kenny (Nicholas Hoult), senses something is wrong with the professor; collects his important financial papers from his bank; buys bullets for a handgun he owns; and makes a visit to his best friend (Julianne Moore). But throughout these methodical preparations, George keeps running into people -- a colleague's daughter, a attractive gay hustler, and the sympathetic Kenny -- who offer him glimpses of why he should stay alive. A SINGLE MAN is the directorial debut of legendary fashion designer Tom Ford.

Chicago Tribune 10 of 10
Some films aren't revelations, exactly, but they burrow so deeply into old truths about love and loss and the mess and thrill of life, they seem new anyway...A Single Man is one such film, one of the best of 2009. It's subtly heartbreaking. In adapting Christopher Isherwood's 1964 novel to the screen, first-time feature filmmaker Tom Ford has put his admiration of the source material, a groundbreaking text in the pre-Stonewall era, to excellent results. Ford also has facilitated a career best for Colin Firth, one of the screen's great and subtle portraitists. Firth is nearly always exemplary in his efforts; here, though, he opens up to new areas of artistry as well as subtlety. Early in A Single Man, the protagonist George Falconer learns of his longtime lover's death in a car accident. George receives the news by telephone. (The story takes place in Santa Monica in 1962.) The camera stays on him a long time, as he soldiers through the niceties, holding back his emotions as best he can while thanking his caller for the information. It is a stunning piece of acting and in this one shot, Ford -- a legendary fashion designer for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent -- proves himself an instinctual colleague...Much of the film, which is meticulously art-directed but not fussily so, takes place in George's canyon-side home, the sort of L.A. domicile that offers seclusion and a sense of elegant limbo. George talks about his mastery of the invisible gay man's life in 1960s America. Gazing at himself getting ready to teach one more day, he sees "not a face in the mirror, but the expression of a predicament." Charley, George's female confidant, is like Sally Bowles all grown up and relocated to Southern California. (Bowles was introduced by Isherwood's own Berlin Stories, long before she became the centerpiece of Cabaret.) Firth and Moore are wonderful together, and just about every sequence and flourish and detail in Ford's film feels and looks right. It is primarily Firth's triumph. But it is not a solitary one. - Michael Phillips
