A Single Man (2009)

Tom Ford directs Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Nicholas Hoult in this 1960s Americana period drama where a grieving gay professor meticulously prepares for his suicide over a day.

A heady mixture of sensuality and precision. You know everything within the frame has been chosen to a direct cohesive specification, right down to the weave of Firth’s protagonist’s black woollen tie. The performances are strong, it all floats definitively towards an inevitable conclusion.
