Arthur Newman

Gail puts every Colin Firth movie in her Netflix queue. In this one he’s divorced and has a bad relationship with his son, so he fakes his death and heads north from Florida to Indiana in hopes of landing a gig as a “golf pro Arthur Newman.” He’s really just some working stiff who happens to be decent at golf.

Along the way he meets a down-on-her-luck woman who was really well-played by Emily Blunt. They help each other find themselves and the movie plays to their highs and lows. It gets a little weird when they start breaking into houses of random people and imitating their lives, but it didn’t work all that bad.

Yeah, sure, check it out if you like more dark than light in your romantic comedies.
