A Single Man

Just watched 'A Single Man.' One of the best movies I've seen in a long time. God, Colin Firth was so damn good in it. Beautiful, but, gah, SO SAD. And yet, funnier than I thought it would be.

Wow, yes. I can't stop thinking about it. I want to fic it. (Although it hardly needs anything else added.) Did you also see An Education? I kind of want those characters to meet. Like, have Julianne Moore take Carey Mulligan under her wing. (Although I love Peter Sarsgaard, his character wouldn't deserve Colin Firth!)

ETA: His dogs! That wrecked me, his losing them on top of losing Jim. Gah! That scene where he sees a dog just like the ones he used to have was heartbreaking.

YES, Julianne Moore's character taking Carey Mulligan's character under her wing would be amazing. Excellent idea. :)

Everything about A Single Man hit me so hard. It captured that aching, aching pain of true loss in such a magnificent way. And the dogs wrecked me too (and I'm glad I know someone who understands being wrecked by the dogs, some people just don't!).

I don't know if I'll fic that, but I did like the idea. :)

And the dogs wrecked me too (and I'm glad I know someone who understands being wrecked by the dogs, some people just don't!).

It was so devastating, that he lost his entire family in one moment. :-( And that he couldn't even really talk about it with anyone but Charlotte. *sniff* The movie is definitely staying with me.
