Tom Ford's "A Single Man" hit cinema screens in Auckland tonight as one of the players in this years World Cinema Showcase.
The story follows George (Colin Firth) as he comes to terms with the death of his long-term partner. Set the early 1960s in LA George, a college professor, while leading a lecture, poignantly questions the impact fear of the minority has on the mass. He discusses the fears some have of the black civil rights movement, the fear of not being heard but skirts around the topic of sexuality and minorities.
And so continues George's journey of discovery, enlightenment and reflection. A Single Man is beautifully shot and embodies a narrative sparse in words - a must see! xxx
