Over the weekend Dr. Jay and I tried to go on a date to see Crazy Heart, but arrived a little late and the only seats available probably weren’t together (not date-worthy) so we ended up seeing Tom Ford’s A Single Man.
We had seen the previews for this movie back in the fall and were intrigued. Well, it’s not that romantic of a movie (if you are heterosexual) but the architecture is amazing. Colin Firth’s character lives in a 1949 John Lautner designed home supposedly in Santa Monica (though it’s actually in Glendale, thank you Apartment Therapy) and the images from the movie are still with me. I enjoyed the movie for the architecture. That sounds like a completely ridiculous thing to say.
Look how the house is formed around the tree. Incredible.
The house is for sale right now- it’s two bedrooms, one and a half baths, two car detached garage: listed for $1,495,000. Actually, that’s a steal compared to home prices around here.
If you’re wondering why I am posting in the middle of the day during a work week, well, I am waiting for the plumber. He is LATE.
