Arthur - Trailer
Director Jason WinerYear 2011Genre(s) Comedies
Arthur Bach is a man who's always had everything he wants, from driving around in the Batmobile to his floating bed and music lessons with Kanye West whatever Arthur wants he gets. Many would say, Arthur is a child stuck in a man's body and he would be if it were not for his faithful lifelong carer, Hobson, who's his best friend and perhaps the only one who truly believes in Arthur's potential. There's also Bitterman, Arthur's driver who is his general partner in crime when it comes to getting up to things a billionaire shouldn't be seen doing.
Much to Arthur's dismay, his current way of life is about to be put to an end. His mother is a powerful business woman, and when she offers Arthur the ultimatum of either marrying a woman she's chosen for him or losing his inheritance, he's forced to accept his mother's rigid agreement. After all, how bad can marriage be? Susan, the woman he's set to betroth is beautiful - but in reality, they have nothing in common, Susan is a driven business woman, much like Arthur's mother, and the prospect of not marrying for love is something Arthur never considered.
Whilst Arthur pays a visit to central New York he literally stumbles across a woman called Naomi. Naomi is a tour guide who might not have any money but she shares many of Arthur's idealisms and his sense of spontaneity. Wishing to be with Naomi over Susan, Arthur faces some hard decisions about his current way of life and what he's willing to give up for love.
