RECENT RELEASE: A Single Man
July 2nd, 8pm
Based on the 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, the film follows a single day in the life of an unhappy single man.
An elegant, nuanced and sophisticated performance from Colin Firth of a man who has had to construct or reconstruct a personality to bear the weight of loss, and whom society will not permit to grieve.
Delicately, and rather brilliantly, Firth suggests how his quiet heroism is mingled with notes of irony and self-deprecation. It is a poignant, deeply compassionate portrait.
A fabulously stylish and beautifully crafted film.
