Ties of love and kindness

Just a quick post today. Yesterday afternoon I went to see the movie, A Single Man.  It was directed by Tom Ford, the fashion designer. Even though it dissolves at times into scenes that look like a Calvin Klein ad, it still has a moving story and a very human performance by Colin Firth. It really got to me.

If you see the movie, you will understand the title of this post.

I LOVED A Single Man - what a beautiful film - the colours and quiet scenes pulled each and every string within me. I need to see it again. The title of your blog is perfect. Colin Firth's character was inherently kind as where each and every line (both seen and spoken).

Don't you think the casting was brilliant? I can't think of a better line up.

Heather, yes I loved this movie and I thought the casting was wonderful. Well, actually Julianne Moore struck me as a bit out of place somehow...maybe it was the accent? But I loved the film and thought it was heartwrenching and hopeful at the same time. I thought Colin Firth was incredible.

I am now following your beautiful blog, by the way. : )
