Super Brit Colin Firth and the hugely talented Emily Blunt unite and escape as ARTHUR AND MIKE in this bitter-sweet romance, written by Academy Award nominee, Becky Johnston (Seven Years in Tibet) and we’ve got a clip to share to celebrate the release in cinemas now.
One-time talented golfer, Wallace Avery (Colin Firth) is struggling with a life from which he longs to escape. Faking his own death, he acquires a forged passport and a new identity—that of a golfer named “Arthur Newman”. “Arthur” heads out for Indiana to start a new life and a promise of a new job as a resident golf-pro at a prestigious club. Along the way, he meets the beautiful but troubled Charlotte (Emily Blunt), who is also traveling under a false identity—that of her schizophrenic twin sister, Michaela or “Mike”—and has fled her own home in North Carolina.
Head over to this link for the full trailer but also enjoy this clip below, that shows our titular stars getting a touch naughty – and Emily Blunt looking rather phenomenal in underwear and a fur coat, plus they’re both unexpectedly sporting different accents!
ARTHUR AND MIKE will also be available on demand and digital to own and rent from August 4th and released on DVD on August 25th, 2014.
