Arthur Newman Reviews

April 27, 2013
A strange film about dysfunctional people directed with good pace by Dante Ariola in his feature film debut highlighted by fine performances by Colin Firth and Emily Blunt.

Firth and Blunt give life (and flawless American accents) to this restrained, and occasionally bland, road trip flick.

Firth's performance alone would have been enough to hail this film by director Dante Ariola. Toss in an equally powerful performance by Blunt, and the film turns to a masterwork of acting.

Often-somber drama has language, sex, drinking.

Without a satisfying finale, Arthur Newman might come across as just an acting exercise. If so, it's still an impressive one.

OK, so hear me out. This movie is about Colin Firth having hot, dress-up sex with this drifter named Mike.

Ariola is genuinely into character, making sure you get enough glimpses into the lives of these people so you may glean a sense of what ails these damaged souls.

A wistful, well-acted run-away-to-find-yourself dramedy

Road movie about two unhappy people who take on new identities only to find they still have to face their problems.

Fine work by Colin Firth and Emily Blunt provides the movie's soul, but one can't help but wonder how much more resonant a bolder approach to the material might have been.
