    Tom Ford's debut film, based on a novel A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood. The story is rather interesting, and there are amazing actors in it.. and oh, the production design time is apparently the same as Mad Men. Everything sounds promising, it's really in Tom's hands now..

    How am I not surprised that the very first shot is a naked man? :lol:

    This looks very interesting though. It seems as if he directed the trailer as well - very mysteriously put with no speaking whatsoever. Very intrigued. Very very. Can't wait to see.

    This got very good reviews at Venice Film Festival. Collin Firth won a Best Actor for it there as well.

    ^ Oh i didnt know that, been waiting for the trailer so thanks for posting simons. :flower:

    Didn't read the book, but i heard good things about it and planned to, but never got around to it, so now i will rather see the movie first, since in my experience the pictures never do them justice.I always end up thinking the book was much better since you can only so much translate on the big screen.

    But the trailer looks stunning, cinematography looks amazing
    i have faith in Tom, and he got a great cast, it all looks well done.Hopefully he didnt do to much graphic sex.

    Thanks for the reviews Miss D.:flower:
    The trailer is very good indeed and makes me want to see this even more.
    The fact that the casting looks so good is also a plus.

    It is a really interesting trailer. I love the shot of her eye, followed by the rose.

    I'm really excited after watching the trailer and with Colin Firth and Julianne Moore it should be really good.

    I'm happy for Tom that his first foray into film is a success, and the trailer looks sick...love that Mad Men style.

    The girl dressed all in blue tapping her foot is a great image. Reminds me of something you would see in W Magazine.

    I'll probably just watch it to see Jon K. But it does look like an excellent film

    This is like the only one December release that I'm actually looking forward to. I can't remember the last time a December looked so unappetizing for movies. This should be quite good though, can't wait.
