I haven't seen A single man yet, but I have always been a fan of Colin Firth. I am delighted for him!  :D

I completely agree.  I had no idea Colin Firth was such an amazing actor until A Single Man!

Oh, order the 'Pride and Prejudice' dvd from the bbc for lots more Colin Firth goodness!

Great news about the oscar nomination. I'm sure he deserves it even though I haven't seen the movie yet.

I haven't been here a BetterMost in ages... but I gotta say, that A Single Man is by far the best movie I've seen since Brokeback. In fact I've seen it 7 times thus far and will be returning to see it again next weekend.

It's soundtrack plays non-stop in my cars stereo wherever I go, too.

Hi Rob,

Wow, 7 times.  I agree with you--and I've only seen it three times!  This, and Shelter are the only two films I've wanted to see more than once since Brokeback.

The soundtrack is indeed mesmerizing. 

I may have to see it again.

Cheers,
Paul

Nice to hear from you Rob! Would love to hear more about your thoughts on A Single Man!


Now, Bright Star, about the short adulthood of John Keats and his love Fanny Brawne, is finally out on DVD. I can't wait to see it, but I must...my evenings are all booked until the weekend!!

Arianne Phillips was nominated for costume design on this movie and Nicholas Hoult was named a rising star, but somehow I expected the movie to receive more awards from BAFTA. Oh well, on to the Oscars!

I feel pretty much the same way, loved it!

Of course Colin Firth won Best Actor, which made me smile a big one. (A tear or two, too!)

I also thought that the musical score, which really played a large part in the film, deserved to be recognized!
