What acting ! - A Single Man review by JD

Spoiler Alert
09/11/2010

The Bafta award for acting was won 100 times over. Firth plays such a diverse range of emotions with supreme subtlety. It is a powerful drama using acting skill rather than plot to create tension. Its gayness is pretty full-on but isn't pornographic at all. The plot is pretty basic but this film is about feelings rather than story.

Classy British acting - A Single Man review by Pete W

A group of (mainly) British actors give a restrained, dignified set of performances. Colin Firth dominates the film and is in practically every shot. An interesting story line with a number of twists and turns kept me engaged. I agree with a previous reviewer - the "gay" tag is irrelevant.

An OK watchable film - A Single Man review by DB

Spoiler Alert

I wouldn't give this a great rating and it was not particularly moving but rather more sad. I did not feel much empathy for the characters and overall it's a bit so so. Nothing really happens in this movie and if you like that sort of film then it's for you.
