Cinedigm Acquires U.S. Distribution Rights To ARTHUR NEWMAN

Cinedigm Entertainment Group, a division of Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to ARTHUR NEWMAN , one of most highly anticipated films at this year's Toronto Film Festival.

Colin Firth and Emily Blunt star in the touching story written by Academy Award® nominated screenwriter Becky Johnston ("Prince of Tides", "Seven Years in Tibet") and directed by Dante Ariola (Cannes Gold Lion winner, two-time DGA Directors nominee), making his feature film directorial debut. ARTHUR NEWMAN  follows the mid-life travails of sad sack Wallace Avery (Firth). He hates his job, his ex-wife and son hate him, and he's blown his one shot at living his dream. Not wanting to face all this, he stages his own death and buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman. However, Arthur's road trip towards a new life is interrupted by the arrival of the beautiful but fragile Mike (Blunt), who is also trying to leave her past behind. Drawn to one another, these two damaged souls begin to connect as they break into empty homes and take on the identities of the absent owners: elderly newlyweds, a high-roller and his Russian lady, among others. Through this process, Arthur and Mike discover that what they love most about each other are the identities they left at home, and their real journey, that of healing, begins.

The film is planned for a theatrical release in mid-2013, followed by on-demand, premium digital, DVD, and TV releases.

The film was produced by Vertebra Film’s Mac Cappuccino and Cross Creek Pictures’ Brian Oliver, with Alisa Tager and Becky Johnston. It was executive produced by Andy Cappuccino, Helen Cappuccino, Natalie G. Hill, James Holt, Lisa Bruce, and Eric Greenfeld.

“ARTHUR NEWMAN  is perfect for today's audiences...A deeply entertaining film highlighted by touching performances from Colin and Emily that bring real heart and soul to a powerful story of displacement, longing and ultimately, redemption. Moviegoers will leave the theatre moved and uplifted,” said Vincent Scordino, Vice President of Acquisitions for Cinedigm Entertainment Group.

The filmmakers were represented in the negotiation by UTA Independent Film Group, CAA and Eric Greenfeld, with Vincent Scordino representing Cinedigm Entertainment Group.
