“A Single Man” – Dec 27

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club, this Sunday, Dec 27 at 4:15 pm, for “A Single Man” at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Look for Craig, wearing a black baseball cap with an orange P, in the upstairs lobby (behind the ticket counter) about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion. In Los Angeles 1962, we follow 52-year-old English college professor George Falconer (Colin Firth) through a single day, as he struggles to find meaning after the death of his long-time partner, Jim (Matthew Goode). Dwelling on the past, George is consoled by his closest friend Charley (Julianne Moore), a 48-year-old beauty wrestling with her own questions about the future. Meanwhile, a young student of George’s, Kenny (Nicholas Hoult), coming to terms with his true nature, stalks George as a kindred spirit. Directed by Tom Ford, A Single Man is a tale of love, interrupted by the isolation of the human condition, and of the importance of the smaller moments in life.
