Colin Firth Glows in Tom Ford's 'A Single Man'

Speaking of drama (see previous post about August: Osage County), we also made it out to Tulsa's art house theater, Circle Cinema, for A Single Man, the directorial debut of clothing designer Tom Ford.

In a sentence, A Single Man is about the day in the life of a gay English professor after the death of his partner in Los Angeles in 1962. British actor Colin Firth stars; his performance is lovely and carefully controlled. It's little wonder that he won Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival for this role.

The movie is visually seductive, too, with Firth and co-star Julianne Moore as lonely souls longing for meaning and feeling among the wreckage of their lives.

We didn't know Tom Ford or his clothes before this movie, but based on his stellar direction of this film, we'd like to know more about his clothes. We also hope he makes more movies.
