Near the end of 2009, fashion designer Tom Ford made his first debut as a film director, producer and screenplay writer for the movie, 'A Single Man'.
'A Single Man' is based on a novel by Christopher Isherwood. The novel is set in Los Angeles a month after the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. This story centres on an English professor, George (played by Colin Firth) who, after the sudden death of his partner (Matthew Goode) tries to go about his typical day. He tries to figure out his life after his partner's death and as his close friend Charley (Julianne Moore) consoles him and his young student (Nicholas Hoult) interacts with him.
The video below is a short trailer and a trivia about the suit below the video. The film has been released in America. It will be released in the UK on the 12th of February.
Thoughts: This is not the usual genre (drama) I would normally watch. The music got my attention as I was chewing gummy colas in the cinema. I loved the mood and the music incorporated in this trailer...believe it or not, I like Colin Firth! I really hope the movie is as good as this trailer. Many movies these days have really good trailers but the outcome would not be as good as originally intended.
Also, a little trivia from IMDB: "Tom Ford explained in a Fresh Air interview that he created a back story for George's suit based on the George character. He decided that George would have had his suit custom made on Saville Row on a trip home to England, which informed its cut and color. He also decided that, since 'old-school' British people of wealth tend to be thrifty with clothing, that his suit was a few years old. Ford even went as far as putting a label on the inside of the suit with his name and the date that it was made for him (1957)."
