A Single Man (2009)
Director: Tom Ford
99 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

Based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood, Tom Ford’s directorial film debut A Single Man (2009) is set in Los Angeles in 1962. At the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis is the story of a British college professor (Colin Firth) who, after the loss of his long time partner, struggles to find meaning in his life. A story of love interrupted, the film depicts isolation as an inherent part of the human condition, and reflects ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.

Firth received the 63rd BAFTA Award for Best Leading Actor for his performance in the film, which won the Queer Lion Award at the 66th Venice Film Festival.
