A Sin­gle Man

The TV Guide - - Tv Movies -

Maori TV, 8.30pm

Star­ring Colin Firth, Ju­lianne Moore. A poignant film about love, loss and the hu­man con­di­tion. Gucci fash­ion guru Tom Ford put up the money and also di­rected what was his first film. Colin Firth leaves Mr Darcy firmly in the 19th century here as Ge­orge, a mid­dle-aged professor mourn­ing the death of his lover Jim in a car crash. Through­out the course of a day, Ge­orge mulls over his de­ci­sion to take his own life. He’s san­guine about it, find­ing time to dis­cuss the pol­i­tics of the day, have din­ner with an old friend and flirt with one of his stu­dents. Deeply mov­ing. ★★★★
