Berkreviews.com Movie Club episode 076 – A Single Man (2009)
Continuing with the theme for Pride Month of LBGTQ+ movies, Corey (@coreyrstarr) selected Tom Ford’s A Single Man (2009). The movie stars Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode, and Nicholas Hoult. Jonathan (@berkreviews) hadn’t heard of it prior to Corey’s suggestion, but both ended up really enjoying the film. Firth did manage to get an Oscar nomination for his performance and it is clearly well deserved.
Next week: Tangerine (2015)
Jonathan selected Sean Baker’s film, shot on iPhone 5s, Tangerine (2015) for the next episode. It stars Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, and Karren Karagulian, and much like Baker’s Florida Project its based around some truth. The film had a lot of buzz coming out of Sundance and it’s been on Jonathan’s radar for some time. It is currently available to stream on Netflix.

Berk Reviews Movie Club – General Info
Corey and Jonathan both realized they had a ton of movies they’d never seen. In an effort to work through their gap list, they started this podcast to ensure they at least check one new film off the list almost every week. Thus, for a film to qualify for Movie Club one or both have to have never seen it or at least not seen it for a long time.
