Fashion designer Tom Ford’s directorial debut A Single Man is a beautifully shot and acted story of love, loss and life. It earned Colin Firth his first Oscar nomination, as well as many other awards and nominations. It finally comes to DVD on July 6th, and if you’ve yet to see it you really need to. I know a few people who saw it thought it was overly glossy and lacked depth, but I don’t agree with that summation. It is glossy, that much is true, but it’s also one of the more beautiful and thoughtful ruminations of the agony of living I’ve ever seen. You can pre-order the film here.
