The trailer and poster have been released for the dramedy Arthur Newman. Colin Firth stars as a has-been golfer who fakes his death, abandons his family, and takes on the new identity of “Arthur Newman”. On his trip to become a golf pro, he meets a wayward young woman (Emily Blunt) who’s running from her own problems. They both decide to escape from their troubles by breaking into people’s homes so they can playact the residents’ lives. I saw the film at TIFF and found it to be the worst kind of indie, and even the trailer plays by the same generic indie trailer beats: problem, quirkiness, drama, uplift.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. Arthur Newman opens April 26th.
