Colin Firth's character stages his own death in Arthur Newman
Sep 17, 2013
Colin Firth plays Wallace Avery, a man tired of being a loser. He started a new life as Arthur Newman and eventually forges a bond with Emily Blunt's character named Mike.
After being unable to shake his nerve, he does something radical. Wallace stages his own death, buys a new identity as Arthur Newman and decides to move away. On the road trip to his new life, he meets Mike (Emily Blunt), who is also trying to forget her past. Connected by a common goal, Arthur and Mike break into empty homes and take on the identities of the absent owners. In the process, they begin to own up to the identities they've left behind and help each other to rediscover themselves.
Arthur Newman is released and distributed by Solar Entertainment Corporation. It will be shown in Philippine cinemas starting October 11.
