A Single Man, directed by Tom Ford
This film is amazing, contemplative, stylish. It's also breathtaking and heartbreaking, hilarious, witty and sad. Tom Ford directed and co-wrote it and Firth, Goode, and Moore are just wonderful. The soundtrack is stunning too, with help from Shigeru Umebayashi who also did the music for In The Mood For Love. I won't go on too much about it, but it did resonate with me because I will soon be 47 and George Falconer, the protagonist and older man, is a noble character.
