Character: Charlotte in A Single Man
Film: A Single Man is based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood. Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, it is the story of a British college professor (Colin Firth) who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner.
The story is a romantic tale of love interrupted, the isolation that is an inherent part of the human condition, and ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.

“ Two characters trying and failing to drown their hopes and regrets, and two strong actors refusing to be tight-laced by a director’s exercise in style: here is a mood piece looking for a fight.” - New Yorker
“A Single Man is more than a pretty movie. It's also a careful examination of love, loss and mourning.
