Tom Ford's A Single Man

Tom Ford has made his directorial debut with A Single Man, an art house film set in 1962 los Angeles, starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore. Though there is little dialog, the movie entrances the viewer with cinematography and music and Firth's performance is mesmerizing. I was especially wowed by the homes of Goerge (Firth) and Charlotte (Moore)!  

The meticulous design of George's mid century glass house completely blew me away. With a little research, I discovered that the house is a 1949 John Lautner designed home and is actually in Glendale (and coincidentally for sale for $1.5 million).

I loved the contradiction of Charlotte and George's homes and personal styles - Charlotte's home was Hollywood Regency Glam all the way. The above scene with the application of her eyeliner showed how cinnematography can completely captivate the viewer with the smallest of tasks .

If you haven't yet seen the film, definitely rush out and do so!
