Our friends at The Weinstein Company have sent us this first look, in the form of a trailer and a poster, at designer Tom Ford’s feature directing debut A Single Man. The film, which features Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Matthew Goode, was also written and produced by the prolific Ford as well.
In case you’re not familiar with the story, it is based on the novel by Christopher Isherwood and set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis. It centers on a British college professor (Firth) who is struggling to find meaning in life after the death of his long time partner.
Along the way he questions love, isolation and through a series of new relationships, both romantic and otherwise, he begins to discover the importance of smaller moments in life. The film recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival to very positive reviews and with star Firth winning for best actor. It opens in theaters December 11th.
Until then, check out a larger version of the poster, and the first trailer, after the jump.
