I finally went to see A Single Man the other night and have certainly fallen head over heels with the eye candy Tom Ford brings to the screen. First and foremost, the houses that Colin Firth and Julianne Moore’s characters lived in almost, just almost, steal the spotlight. Then there is the cars, the wardrobe, the men, the women, and the attention to every detail that all come together to create an absolutely beautiful movie. Tom Ford’s creative direction is noticed in every aspect of the movie and the movie is worth seeing for the visual brilliance Ford delivers.
*When I went home, I found out that the Production Design Team is the group behind Madmen. Both houses are in the Pasadena area and Firth’s character’s house was designed by the famed architect, John Lautner. As a Santa Monica local it was fun to see Chez Jay featured as his neighborhood bar.
