For the second year in a row, there has been an Oscar film about a leading middle-aged homosexual who struggles personally with life (other being Milk). I really like the fact that they cast heterosexual actors and actresses to portray homosexuals because straight people demonstrate that there is just nothing wrong with it hence why pretty much all heterosexual actors get Oscar nominations and win... read more

Since I kept hearing some good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, Colin Firth would have to wait a year to finally win the Academy award for the Best Actor for 'The King's speech' but he was already nomminated a year before for this movie and, to be honest,, I thought he was here actually even better here. Seriously, in my opinion, the guy easily gave here the... read more

A SINGLE MAN is based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood. Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, it is the story of a British college professor (Colin Firth) who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner. The story 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.

Top 10 Saddest Gay Movies That Make You Cry (10 movies items)

" Colin Firth delivers an Oscar-nominated performance as an English professor in the grips of depression after losing his partner of 16 years in this adaptation of the Christopher Isherwood novel. While many LGBT classics centre around coming-of-age stories, Tom Ford’s directorial debut takes a thought-provoking look at long term LGBT relationships and living with loss in middle age."

A Single Man (Review)

“ "Oh, I'm fine,I'm English, We Like to be cold & wet    - George Falconer 

  - In English : 

 A film adapted from a novel by (Christopher Isherwood) of the same title, published in (1964) which talks about a gay professor , is a good film in terms of soundtrack and many of the scenes that show the main character Professor (George Falconer) focus on The details surrounding him like fragrances, beautiful hairstyles, beautiful visual and a very high performance by (Colin Firth) who mastered the role, and also (the soundtrack) is more than wonderful and very expressive and very appropriate especially with atmosphere surrounding.
