Wallace (Firth) hates his job. He's blown his one shot at living his dream, and his relationships are in shambles. Not wanting to face his life, he stages his death and purchases a new identity as Arthur Newman. His hope-filled new existence is soon interrupted by beautiful, reckless, and exciting Mike (Blunt). Together they hit the road, not only stealing the identities of those they encounter, but engaging in an elaborate game of role play and crime that leads far from home. (Gary Reber)
Special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette with the cast and crew (HD 30:27) and the trailer.
The 2.38:1 1080p AVC picture appears to be produced on a low budget and digitally photographed. The image quality appears naturally rendered with well-balanced hues and natural fleshtones. Contrast is balanced with decent blacks and shadow delineation. Resolution is generally sharp during close-ups and is satisfying otherwise. This is an intriguing story with a visual quality that complements. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is essentially monaural in presence, with the exception of a music score that provides subtle surround envelopment, with occasional low-frequency presence in the .1 LFE channel. Dialogue sounds intelligible and spatially integrated. Overall, this is a reserved, frontal-focused soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
