A Single Man March 28, 2010

Posted by Sean Welsh in reviews.

A Single Man was a little surprising at first what with Colin Firth of all people playing a gay lead. But once I got over that and into the story I was captivated by its haunting beauty. In essence, the film is a protracted elegy of lost love told with restraint, delicacy, beauty and overwhelming poignancy. Quite the best love story I have seen in years. Julianne Moore is superb in her short part. The film is beautifully shot and the soundtrack is terrific.

Highly recommended. Bring a hankerchief.
