In ARTHUR NEWMAN, Colin Firth takes on a new identity.

If You Don’t Have a Life, Get Someone Else’s.



Academy Award® Winner Colin Firth (Best Actor, The King’s Speech, 2010), Golden Globe® Winner Emily Blunt (Looper, The Devil Wears Prada) and Anne Heche (Donnie Brasco, HBO’s Hung) star in the romantic road movie Arthur Newman. A romance about two unlikely souls who fall in love and find out who they really are.

Wallace Avery (Colin Firth) hates his job. He’s blown his one shot at living his dream, and his relationships are in shambles. Not wanting to face his life, he stages his death and purchases a new identity as Arthur Newman. His hope-filled new existence is soon interrupted by beautiful, reckless and exciting Mike (Emily Blunt). Together they hit the road, not only stealing the identities of those they encounter, but engaging in an elaborate game of role play and crime that leads far from home.

Written by Academy Award® nominee Becky Johnston (Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published, The Prince of Tides, 1991).
