A Single Man
Our next Rialto Recommends is Tom Ford's 2009 directorial debut A SINGLE MAN starring Colin Firth. The life of George Falconer, a British college professor, is reeling with the recent and sudden loss of his longtime partner. This traumatic event makes George challenge his own will to live as he seeks the console of his close girl friend Charley, who is struggling with her own questions about life. Rolling Stone raved "Ford is a true visionary, but it's his humanity that gives the love story a ravishing, bruised grandeur." While the LA Times said "We're always looking for those performances that truly define an actor, where we can sit back and simply watch the talent soar. For Colin Firth, A SINGLE MAN is that film." A SINGLE MAN is streaming on Netflix or available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube and Vudu.
