A Single Man by Tom Ford, 2009

with Colin Firth (The English Patient, Tinker Tailor Solder Spy, The King's Speech), Julianne Moore (Game Change, Crazy, Stupid, Love., Chloe, The Kids are All Right), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, About a Boy) and Matthew Goode (Imagine Me and You)...

"It's November 30, 1962. Native Brit George Falconer, an English professor at a Los Angeles area college, is finding it difficult to cope with life. Jim, his personal partner of sixteen years, died in a car accident eight months earlier when he was visiting with family. Jim's family were not going to tell George of the death or accident let alone allow him to attend the funeral. This day, George has decided to get his affairs in order before he will commit suicide that evening. As he routinely and fastidiously prepares for the suicide and post suicide, George reminisces about his life with Jim. But George spends this day with various people, who see a man sadder than usual and who affect his own thoughts about what he is going to do. Those people include Carlos, a Spanish immigrant/aspiring actor/gigolo recently arrived in Los Angeles; Charley, his best friend who he knew from England, she who is a drama queen of a woman who romantically desires her best friend despite his sexual orientation; and Kenny Potter, one of his students, who seems to be curious about his professor beyond English class."

Interesting aesthetically, the actors are superb, fragile, on the edge of breaking down. I think I love the actors. Everything looks like jewel, but so untouchable that perhaps, we get detached. I don't really know how to explain, because it's been two months i saw the movie and what remains are beautiful moments. But a great feeling of emptiness. I will come back to it.
