“A Single Man” (2009) It’s November 30, 1962. Native Brit George Falconer (Colin Firth), an English professor at a Los Angeles area college, is finding it difficult to cope with life. Jim (Matthew Goode), his personal partner of sixteen years, died in a car accident eight months earlier when he was visiting with family. Jim’s family were not going to tell George of the death or accident, let alone allow him to attend the funeral. This day, George has decided to get his affairs in order before he will commit suicide that evening. As he routinely and fastidiously prepares for the suicide and post suicide, George reminisces about his life with Jim. But as George spends this day with various people, they affect his thoughts about what he is going to do. Those people include Kenny Potter (Nicholas Hoult), one of his students, who seems to be curious about his professor beyond English class and Charlotte “Charley” Roberts (Julianne Moore), his best friend who he knew from England. Charley is a drama queen of a woman who romantically desires her best friend despite his sexual orientation. Viewer caution – this film contains suicide ideation, depression, and partial nudity.
