'A Single Man' (See It!), Tom Ford + Cast in V Mag

Photographs of the cast of A Single Man by film director/fashion designer Tom Ford appear in the January issue of V Magazine. The stills featuring Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode and Nichols Hoult were taken on set in December 2008, and show the cast in character as adapted from Christopher Isherwood's 1964 novel.

A-Single-Man__Poster-1I caught a screening earlier in the week and was totally blown away by the film (CLICK HERE for a synopsis). The storyline wraps itself around one of my greatest fears (yes, I'll admit it), isolation...the fear of being alone, and the search for meaning after a great loss. Sad and tragic, yes. But thought provoking as well - with tinges of joy.

Set in LA in the early 60's, a time when being gay was socially unacceptable, the film touches on discrimination...first, when Firth's character (George Falconer, a college professor) lectures his students about the fears society (or the majority) has of the minority, and again when Moore's character (Charley, an alcoholic divorcee) tells George that his 16-year relationship with his partner Jim (Matthew Goode) was not a "real relationship."

The production design was fantastic, the idealized cinematography was stunning, and the gorgeous cast did an amazing job. This film transcends gay audiences and touches down on emotions we all feel, no matter one's orientation.

A Single Man opens this Friday in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco; nationwide December 25.

A SINGLE MAN is based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood. Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, it is the story of a British college professor (Colin Firth) who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner. The story 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.

A SINGLE MAN is produced by Tom Ford through his Los Angeles based production company, Fade to Black, in association with Chris Weitz and Andrew Miano of Depth of Field, and Robert Salerno of Artina Films. The screenplay is written by Tom Ford and David Scearce.
