RETURN
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 in 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. Based on Christopher Isherwood's novel of the same name, this 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. ★★★★ "Exciting, emotionally alive filmmaking, a potent cocktail of style and substance " - Ian Free, Empire
