Wallace Avery is tired of his life. Divorced, disconnected from his son, dissatisfied with his love life, he decides the time has come for a radical solution.  He literally walks away from his life, buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman, and sets out toward his own private Oz  – Terre Haute, Indiana – where he believes he has a chance to work as a golf pro. Wallace’s idea of a second chance is to become a second person. His road trip is derailed by the entrance of Michaela Fitzgerald, whom Arthur discovers passed out poolside at a motel.  It takes her all of a couple hours to bust Arthur’s identity scam.  It takes Arthur a lot longer to bust hers. Colin Firth and Emily Blunt co-star in this gently comic love story set in a perfect storm of identity crisis. ARTHUR NEWMAN, from a screenplay written by Becky Johnston, looks at how two people, desperate to remake themselves, fall in love and find a way to accept responsibility for who they really are. 

My review:
Arthur Newman is more of an offbeat romance indie-type movie. It is kind of slow paced but well paced with some lighthearted moments in the movie like breaking and entering people house, role playing, trying to find one’s identity etc. Will 2 lost souls find their way home?
