Check Out Colin Firth in Arthur Newman
Colin Firth stars as a man attempting to start over and Emily Blunt co-stars as the woman who proves to be more than just a bump in the road on his way to a new life in Arthur Newman, a romantic dramedy from first time feature film director Dante Ariola and writer Becky Johnston (The Prince of Tides, Seven Years in Tibet). Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, a new clip has just come online featuring Firth and Blunt.
Wallace Avery (Firth) is tired of his life. Divorced, disconnected from his son, dissatisfied with his love life, he decides the time has come for a radical solution. He literally walks away from his life, buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman, and sets out toward his own private Oz — Terre Haute, Indiana — where he believes he has a chance to work as a golf pro. Wallace’s idea of a second chance is to become a second person. His road trip is derailed by the entrance of Michaela Fitzgerald (Blunt), whom Arthur discovers passed out poolside at a motel. It takes her all of a couple hours to bust Arthur’s identity scam. It takes Arthur a lot longer to bust hers.
