Weekly Volcano's Review

Roger Ebert on January 27th, 2010

Favorite This Like this Movie? You can Favorite it on your Profile.

Colin Firth as a homosexual Brit teaching college in Los Angeles in 1962 and privately mourning his lover, who has been dead for eight months.  He maintains an impeccable facade as he goes through what we have reason to suspect may be the last day of his life.  Julianne Moore is the wealthy woman with whom he maintains a sad friendship.  A flawless performance, but director Tom Ford so successfully portrays his reserved exterior that he shuts us away from what must be shrieks of grief and anger, bottled up. — Three out of four stars

Firth's performance is amazing; besides the obvious grief, we see rage, kindness, lust, contentment. There are humorous scenes â€" if a bit macabre.
