It wouldn’t be Oscar season without a Colin Firth drama and since his Coens-scripted Gambit got pushed to 2013 we’ve got another film taking its place. While it doesn’t have distribution yet, Arthur Newman premieres at Toronto and the first still has been released, which one can see The King’s Speech Oscar-winner embracing Emily Blunt. The Dante Ariola film finds Firth as “a depressed divorce faking his own death and adopting a new identity,” who then “meets a troubled young woman (Blunt) who spurs him on to new heights of playacting during a cross-country spree of life-swapping and bed-hopping.”
