Arthur Newman

Wallace Avery 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, 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.  Colin Firth and Emily Blunt co-star in this gently comic love story set in a perfect storm of identity crisis. "Arthur Newman," from a screenplay written by Becky Johnston, looks at how two people, desperate to remake themselves, fall in love and find a way to accept responsibility for who they really are.
