You know what would be truly ironic? If an English professor (Who was an actual, English, professor, get it?), heartbroken over a lover’s death, decides to kill himself (in a very proper English way – funeral clothes laid out and everything), but he keeps having epiphanies throughout the day that bring him back from the brink (He keeps having a change of heart, get it?). And then, when he finally decides that life is worth continuing, he drops dead of a heart attack (A heart attack, get it?). When it comes to movie irony, “A Single Man” (2009) is cinematic hemochromatosis.
