Colin Firth Is Creepy. Gay. Pretty.
I'll say this much, however: It sure is pretty. It should be, I suppose, as it comes from debut writer/director Tom Ford, a fashion designer responsible for the turnaround of Gucci (he pulled it back from the brink of bankruptcy). It looks lush and gorgeous.It's like a soft-focus wet dream -- the kind of movie one might expect from a fashion designer. Aside from the visuals, however, who knows if it's any damn good?
The movie, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival won the Queer Lion Award (Don't mess with the queer lions -- they will fuck you up). Firth was also given the award for best actor.
Keep an eye out for Nicholas Hoult, the kid from About a Boy. He's not a kid anymore (which I suspect fans of "Skins" already know). He's a pretty boy.
