If Tom Ford‘s name doesn’t sound particularly familiar to you, it’s probably because you don’t submerge yourself in the world of fashion. I’m not judging because neither do I, but let me give you a little background. Ford is a noted fashion designer best known for his work as the creative director of the Gucci brand. This year with the feature A Single Man, Ford has crossed over from fashion to film director.
Just this weekend Firth won the Best Actor Award at the Venice Film Festival for his work in A Single Man. The film is quickly becoming one to watch. I’ve even read comparison’s between this film and last year’s The Wrestler. In A Single Man Firth stars as a gay college professor grieving after the sudden death of his long time lover.
