A Single Man

Everyone scoffed when Tom Ford announced that he was going to make movies after he left fashion but now that his new film, A Single Man, is garnering Oscar buzz, the critics are sitting up and taking notice. I’ve already taken notice of the chic 1960’s interiors and think the design world may have a new favorite source of inspiration. It’s clear that Ford is one of those creative types whose talent and vision translates into perfection no matter what the medium. The film is based on the Christopher Isherwood’s 1964 novel of the same name stars Colin Firth and Julianne Moore and opens on December 10th. Bon Weekend!

    Oh my goodness, when I glanced at the first photo I thought it was Robert Redford and Jane Fonda! I haven’t seen this, but love all the details. Julianne looks amazing, as always!

    oh wait. Movies are cinematic again and actually pay close attention to details of a set; the decor, period touches, and costume? This was a huge topic at the keynote panel at DCOTA yesterday. Thank GOD movies are back and someone like Tom Ford (in all his bare-chested glory) is ushering them in!

    Colin Firth and Julianne Moore in a 60s period piece directed by Tom Ford? Are you kidding? This could be the worst movie ever and I would pay to see it just for the art direction! Apparently there is some good pre-release buzz, so if the movie is actually good, that’s a bonus ;>

    Wow, sensational. Thanks. The always flawless Julianne Moore together with Colin Firth, that’s a recipe for success. I hope the script and direction can equal the set designs you have pictured (and the costumes on Ms.Moore of course)
    isnt she just gorgeous?

    Any movie with Julianne Moore and I’m sold! So far, I loved the set of Miss Pettigrew but this just might rival it. And is that Jon Kortajarena I see in his acting debut?
