Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Dante Ariola's feature debut Arthur Newman stars Colin Firth as Wallace Avery, a man so tired of his own life that he fakes his death and hits the road with a doctored ID and a new name. Along the way he befriends Mike (Emily Blunt), a troubled young woman with whom he has more in common than he ever expected. The couple head for a job opportunity, slowly learning to trust each other along the way. Arthur Newman screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.
