December 16, 2020
Tom Ford's sensational debut features superb performances from Colin Firth and Julianne Moore in this haunting gay drama.
November 29, 2020
A pitch-perfect study of bereavement, minimal yet expressive, full of subtlety and depth, Firth's performance deserves (but probably won't get) an Oscar.

Tom Ford's directorial debut A Single Man is unspeakably gorgeous to behold. From the glorious cinematography to the impossibly beautiful actors and actresses; no frame is wasted on anything even close to ugliness.
