Ford Family Tragedy Re-enacted In Film

Designer-turned-moviemaker TOM FORD had a lot of personal drama to draw from for the suicide scene in his acclaimed new film A SINGLE MAN - it took place in his own family.
Colin Firth plans his suicide in the movie after losing his longtime partner, played by fellow Brit Matthew Goode, and Ford admits the tragedy of the movie seems authentic because he actually experienced a relative's similar dreadful death.
He tells WENN, "The suicide in the story comes from my family. There was a suicide that really took place in my family. It was exactly that re-enacted in the film by Colin's character with the suit and cufflinks laid out, and how he zipped himself into a sleeping bag because he didn't want to make a mess.
"I remember very vividly that there were darkly comic moments because what are you gonna do when these things happen to you in your life."
