Wallace Avery is tired of being a loser. Once a hot shot in the world of competitive amateur golf, Wallace was dubbed ‘The Choker’ when he hit the pro circuit. Unable to shake off a monumental loss of nerve on the greens, Wallace retired from the pro tour and slipped into the ranks of the quietly desperate.
Deciding to address a radical problem with a radical solution, he stages his own death, buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman, and sets out toward his own private Oz of golf.
An offbeat love story set in a perfect storm of identity crisis, Arthur Newman looks at how two people try to remake themselves and come around to owning up to some basic truths about the identities they left at home.
Directed by newcomer Dante Ariola, Arthur Newman stars Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man), Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, The Wolfman), and Anne Heche (I Know What You Did Last Summer, Six Days Seven Nights).
Arthur Newman opens in limited theaters on April 26.
