This is Martin Bonner

When attending the Sundance Film Festival, it's nearly impossible to catch every single film playing at the festival, so there are always some indies that fall through the cracks on our coverage. One such film was This is Martin Bonner, from writer and director Chad Hartigan, and now the first trailer is here for the summer release. The story follows fifty-something Martin Bonner (Paul Eenhorn), who has just moved Reno, leaving behind his two adult children and 20 years he spent living on the East Coast. But he finds work helping prisoners transition to life on the outside, causing him to make an unlikely friend. Watch it!

Here's the first trailer for Chad Hartigan's This is Martin Bonner, via Film School Rejects:

Chad Hartigan writes and directs, This is Martin Bonner, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Fifty-something Martin Bonner (Paul Eenhorn) leaves his old life behind and relocates to Reno, where he finds work helping released prisoners transition to life on the outside, while trying out speed dating and passing time as a soccer referee on weekends. Meanwhile, Travis Holloway (Richmond Arquette) has just been released from prison after serving 12 years and the two form an unlikely friendship that offers them reciprocal support and understanding. Monterey Media gives the film a limited release June 28th.

    Chad used to write for InContention. If his style of film making matches his wit and taste for films, we're in for a treat.
