The word from Toronto: The Weinstein Company buys A Single Man

After last week's impressive showing at the Venice Film Festival and Colin Firth's best actor win, the excitement around Tom Ford's A Single Man went way up right before its Toronto debut.

According to indieWIRE, the film found a distributor after its first screening. Harvey Weinstein's The Weinstein Company bought the American and German rights to the film managing to out bid Focus Features. It's the first high profile purchase of the Toronto International Film Festival.

TWC is set to release the film sometime this year, so I guess that throws it into the awards race, especially considering Colin Firth's much talked about performance.
