A Single Man Trailer

Above is the trailer for A Single Man, the first feature from director Tom Ford. Colin Firth took home the Best Actor prize from the Venice Film Festival.

Not much can be gathered about the plot from this trailer, which focuses primarily on the film's striking visuals, but from what I can gather from various Venice reviews, the film is set in Los Angeles in 1962. George Falconer, a British college professor, is struggling to find meaning in his life after the death of his long-time partner, Jim. The film follows George through a single day, in which George is consoled by his closest friend, Charley, and is stalked by one of his students, Kenny.

Sounds interesting, to say the least. No word on a US distributor as of yet, but I'm hoping one is found in time for an awards run, as I would LOVE to see Colin Firth getting a little love from Oscar. The poor man has never once been nominated despite several extraordinary performances. For shame.
