Academy Award winner Colin Firth and Emily Blunt star in the upcoming road trip movie “Arthur Newman.” The film, which opens April 26, 2013 is directed by Dante Ariola and also stars Anne Heche.
The story follows Wallace Avery (Firth), who’s tired of being a loser. Once a hot shot in the world of competitive amateur golf, Wallace failed miserably when he turned pro.
Ten years after retiring from the pro tour, he’s lost his job at FedEx, his ex-wife openly pities him, and his 13-year-old son hates him. Unable to face his life of quiet desperation any longer, Wallace stages his own death and buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman.
