Arthur Newman Creates A New Identity, But Not Much Of A Story (Movie Review)

Arthur Newman is the story of a man with a past that is slowly revealed and the quirky girl that follows along with him on a road trip.  It has all the elements of a feel good drama that could be interesting to watch for its story and more engaging due to the actors involved.  […]

I would really like to emphasize that this should not be the case. The King’s Speech is a fantastic film, which features great performances by its lead actors, tells a very good (true) story about a man overcoming adversity, and is also very funny. Essentially, this is the story of how a stiff Brit with a disability learned how to loosen up and help lead a nation.
