Thinking Faith reviews A Single Man

Colin Firth in A Single Man

Colin Firth in A Single Man

Director Tom Ford's first film  stars Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode, Nicholas Hoult. ‘I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.’ So CS Lewis described his mourning of his beloved wife, Helen, in A Grief Observed. The painfully honest depiction of bereavement on those pages takes its author from anguish to numbness and back again, with a constant questioning of his understanding of the God he refuses to abandon...

If a three-word summary of A Single Man were ever needed, then it would hardly be possible to do better than to borrow the title, and with it much of the sentiment of Lewis’ manuscript. Read Frances Murphy's review on: www.thinkingfaith.org/articles/FILM_20100219_2.htm
