This is what i call a top class near perfect film. Five minutes into the film and you get totally involved with characters. The story revolves around Colin Firth, an English proffesor who after the sudden death of his partner plans to kill himself. On the day he has planned his suicide, he ends up meeting several people who affect his thought about what he is about to do. Tom Ford as a debutant director has shown a lot of potential. Its a mature subject and Tom has done full justice to the script. Each and every character is very well crafted. Colin Firth has given a splendid performance. You will be short at superlatives to describe his talent. He is very convincing as a single isolated gay man. Nicholas Hoult is at his charming best and you just can't take your eyes off Julianne Moore. She is impeccable as love seeking woman. She also has some really amazing moments with Colin in the film. One major thing which i would like to mentionis is the way all those scenes are shot involving the gay couple. It looks so aesthetic and so very beautiful that you actualy get connected with the couple very easily. There is a certain ease with which they make films on homosexuality. Directors back home in bollywood needs to take a tip or two about canning such delicate subjects on celluloid. Another highlight of this movie is this the background score which is absolutly in sync with the film. In some scenes it is actually the background score which does the talking. Though the climax is a bit tragic but when u leave the hall u are only raving about those 90 minutes of cinematic brilliance you just saw on screen. Its a must watch for every film buff who is looking for some meaningfull cinema this summer.

A Single Man was the most enjoyable movies this summer. However, only those with patience and tolerance for films and different ideas should watch this movie. The movie is different from your average Hollywood movie. There is less masala and more thought needs to be applied while watching the movie. The movie also is not very fast, it does not drag either, but its strong story needs to be told slow. It is full of flashbacks and the whole movie is about one day in the life of George Falconer, who I must say Colin Firth does a beautiful job in portraying.
With a strong script, we also see fantastic work done by all the actors. Julianne Moore does a marvelous job and really reaches out to the audience. Colin Firth playing a homosexual man was also very very very convincing. The third character who I enjoyed watching was Nicholas Hoult ( you may remember him from About A Boy, or the famous TV series, Skins). He too has performed wonderfully. I have only compliments for the whole cast and crew of the movie and the superb job they all did in the movie.
I would say that definitely go and watch A Single Man if you are looking for something for sophisticated and out of the box. The movie is full of surprises and has an original screenplay. It may be a little dry in parts but I think that was intended by the director. If you go and watch this movie with an open mind, you will definitely walk out a 100% satisfied and content! less
