The Weinstein Co. has bought Tom Ford’s directorial debut A Single Man in a seven-figure deal, with the intention of giving it an Oscar-qualifying release this year. The ultra-stylish drama, starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, had its North American premiere last night at the Toronto International Film Festival. Weinstein already has NineInglourious Basterds, and The Road on its Oscar slate. I’d call Firth (Best Actor) and Moore (Best Supporting Actress) the two strongest shots at nominations from the film.
