Movie: "A Single Man"

[IMG_1612.jpg]Colin Firth plays a gay university professor in Los Angeles in the early 60's.  He's mourning the death of his lover and planning suicide when the pain continues nearly a year afterword.  He lives in a modern house with lots of glass, and is friends with a former lover played by Julianne Moore, who continues to think there's a possibility of restoring their sexual relationship.  Because the director is designer Tom Ford, everyone and everything is beautiful.  After meeting up with one of his gay students at a bar, he begins to think there's a possibility of happiness.  Alas, it's not to be.
