I just want to get something off my chest: I'm a supporter for gay rights. Having said that, I don't feel uncomfortable seeing same-sex interaction in the media. And to answer your question, no, I'm not a homosexual.
English professor George Falconer (Colin Firth) is slowly recovering from the death of his lover Jim (Matthew Goode). Throughout one day, George plans a suicide. Planning out his day, he sees his close friend Charley (Julianne Moore) and student Kenny Potter (Nicholas Hoult) for a final time.
I give Tom Ford kudos for several things. One, the use of brighter colors when George sees something that pleases him. Two, the immense detail in the 1960s-era outfits. And three, for directing an absolutely beautiful yet heartbreaking movie. And the score by Abel Korzeniowski is just breathtaking.
My Rating: *****
