VENICE: Film Festival - A SINGLE MAN the movie

LIDO: Venice Film Festival – A Single Man, the movie.  Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the missile crisis following US invasion of Cuba, Tom Ford’s directorial debut, A Single Man, is the story of George Falconer, a 52-year old British college professor, played by Colin Firth, who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner, Jim. George dwells on the past and cannot see his future as we follow him through a single day, where a series of events and encounters, ultimately leads him to decide if there is a meaning to life after Jim. George is consoled by his closest friend Charley, played by Julianne Moore, a 48-year old beauty who is wrestling with her own questions about the future. A young student of George’s, Kenny, who is coming to terms with his true nature, stalks his professor as he feels in him a kindred spirit.
