A Single Man (2009)

From Netflix: "This stream-of-consciousness, 1960s-era drama centers on a day in the life of George Falconer (Colin Firth, in an Oscar-nominated role), an English-born, Los Angeles college professor reeling from the recent death of his lover of 16 years. Fashion designer Tom Ford makes his directoral debut with this luminous film, which is based on Christopher Isherwood's novel. Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode, Ginnifer Goodwin, Lee Pace and Nicholas Hoult co-star."  2009   100 minutes

This is a moving film about grief and  loss.  It is sensitively done and a "must see."  The Movie Slut's review says it all. "A Single Man: Better than Brokeback."
