'A Single Man' is a Hit in Venice
By Jessanne Collins
Fashion designer Tom Ford's much-anticipated film project made a splash at the Venice Film festival this weekend. A Single Man, an adaptation of Christopher Isherwood's classic novel about a gay professor coping with the loss of his longtime partner, was awarded the festival's Queer Lion -- an unofficial award for the best gay-themed film. Officially speaking, the film's star, Colin Firth (aka Mr. Darcy and, uh, Mr. Darcy), took home the best actor award for his role. The film, which was directed by Ford and also stars Julianne Moore and up-and-comer Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy), will be released in the U.S. later this year.
