Paducah, KY – "Most Criminally Overlooked" could be the only honor the movie A Single Man from first-time director Tom Ford and Colin Firth took away from the 82nd Academy Awards. Firth was nominated for Best Actor in this film based on a 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, but lost to Jeff Bridges. Larry Thomas and Todd Hatton talk about this story of a closeted professor in 1962 Los Angeles facing life without the man he loved, playing this week at Maiden Alley Cinema in Paducah.
A Single Man
Oscar Nominee Colin Firth & 4 Time Oscar Nominee Julianne Moore in The Directorial Debut of Tom Ford
A SINGLE MAN is based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood. Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, it is the story of a British college professor (Colin Firth) who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner. The story is a romantic tale of love interrupted, the isolation that is an inherent part of the human condition, and ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.
