I found it a compelling story of moving through grief. It portrayed one day in a lonely man's life, but shed light on much more. I am interested to learn more about Christopher Isherwood.

It is a well-done movie, with superb acting! Expressive, artistic! Do listen to the commentary, worth it! It is a sad movie.. Worth watching!

As boring and depressed as this English professor appears to be it is no wonder he contemplates suicide after his lover's death. The professor's raison d'etre is a connection with another human being which in his case is a male companion. Lacking a human connection the professor prefers death. How sad. There is not enough substance to recommend this movie.

Snore.... Colin Firth and Julianne Moore gave what they could to the characters but the movie dragged along.

Unbelievably dull. Like a very very long commercial for men's cologne. Normally I like both Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, but I couldn't wait for this to end. Too bad.

Boring and a complete waste of time. I quit after a half hour of the same old poor homosexual nonsense.

As someone else pointed out, the movie is not described for what it is. The story is basically that of a homosexual man of high means moping over the death of his male lover. Depressing and a waste of time.

I watched the trailer before I watched this movie and there was nothing to indicate it was about a homosexual man. Why don’t the make clear the movie is about homosexuality, since it is? I didn’t like it.

This is a wonderful movie; complicated, detailed, infinitely patient. Colin Firth is a deeply interesting actor to watch. The range of emotional experience he goes through without a lot of grandstanding, or even words most of the time, is beautiful and terrible to behold. And the end was most surprising and oddly satisfying. Melanie

Cover intentionally misleads. This is about gay love, and Matthew Goode's face should have been on the cover art, rather than Julianne Moore's.

A story that centers on an English professor who, one year after the sudden death of his partner, is unable to cope with his typical days in 1960's Los Angeles.

Based on the same name novel by Christopher Isherwood , this film is a romantic story of love interrupted. The isolation that all of us feel , especially after the loss of a loved one, leads the way to recognizing the importance of the " little things " in life.
