Yes, that Tom Ford — the ex-Gucci captain, Keira Knightley-nuzzler and now writer-director whose A Single Man will have its world premiere (in competition, no less) at next month’s Venice Film Festival. Ford adapted Christopher Isherwood’s acclaimed novel about an English college professor (played by Colin Firth) who quietly attempts to go about his business unaffected after his partner’s sudden death; Julianne Moore, Ginnifer Goodwin and Matthew Goode co-star. Among Ford’s peers also chasing the festival’s Golden Lion? Just some schlubs named Werner Herzog, Michael Moore, Jacques Rivette, Giuseppe Tornatore, Todd Solondz and John Hillcoat, whose The Road will also have its long-awaited debut.
