A Single Man - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, "A Single Man" is the story of George Falconer, a 52 year old British college professor (Colin Firth) who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner, Jim (Matthew Goode). George dwells on the past and cannot see his future as we follow him through a single day, where a series of events and encounters, ultimately leads him to decide if there is a meaning to life after Jim. George is consoled by his closest friend Charley (Julianne Moore), a 48 year old beauty who is wrestling with her own questions about the future. A young student of George's, Kenny (Nicholas Hoult), who is coming to terms with his true nature, stalks George as he feels in him a kindred spirit. "A Single Man" is a romantic tale of love interrupted, the isolation that is an inherent part of the human condition, and ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.

MOVIE REVIEW

Few first-time directors come out of the gate with all guns firing, but Tom Ford appears to have done so with A Single Man, a superbly acted, emotionally intriguing and visually stimulating drama that is one of the year's best.
