Trivia / A Single Man

  • Doing It for the Art: Tom Ford self-financed the film version, and even had to personally ask Colin Firth to accept the part.
  • Fake American: Matthew Goode and Nicholas Hoult, who are both English.
  • Fake Brit: Julianne Moore is American. Apparently she listened to very early Julie Christie for the sixties feel and mixed it up with modern British party girls to get her characters way of speaking.
  • Technology Marches On: While in the loo George knows Charley is calling him and, in the book, laments the fact there isn't a phone cord long enough for him to speak to her from there. Ignoring the fact, even with a corded phone, a person could put a phone in the bathroom, there are now cordless phones, and many people do take mobile/cell phones into the bathroom with them for various reasons.
