A Single Man (2009)

It is evident from the beginning that this film is about style and mood. The two incredible aspects of it are the cinematography and the design bringing the viewer back five decades into the austere environment of the 1960's.

George is a university professor who has recently lost his lover. He is so consumed by his loss that he endeavors to kill himself that evening. As he prepares to leave the world, he loosens up and life slowly returns to his heart.

The issues of loneliness and the sterility of the society towards homosexuals are well presented through the stylish cast. Wealth and polite friendships can not substitute for the depth of relationships and love.
