This review is from: A Single Man [DVD] (DVD)
A Single Man is a wonderfully filmed story about a man battling a decision of whether or not to kill himself. Or rather, he is already set on killing himself, the story follows one day where he is trying to decide when to do it. It is a simple concept, his life has been grey and bland since the death of his long term partner eight months prior, and as he comes closer to the moment he pulls the trigger, he picks up on the simplest, most beautiful things in life and through experiencing them his world lights up and becomes filled with colour again, if only momentarily.

Colin Firth's performance was well worthy of an Oscar and it is a shame he was up against such good competition the year he was nominated. His portrayal of George Falconer is a true testament to his talent as an actor. Firth matched up with Julianne Moore, Nick Hoult and a mass of talent behind the cameras make this film truly unforgettable. I just can't believe it took me so long after it was released to discover it.
