Arthur Newman:An Adult Film
Once again the Movie Slut disagrees with the criticoscenti. They panned this flick. She praises it.
It's a film for adults, but not in that sense of the world. Think of it as a movie for grown-ups. The beginning is a little pat and tough to believe, but if you stick with it, you'll come away with a beautiful message you won't get from the usual Hollywood fare. No special effects here, but a very effective film starring the always- incredible Colin Firth and an excellent Emily Blunt with a laudable Ann Heche.
Arthur Newman is a character study, a love story and a lesson in what it means to be an adult.
