Chad Hartigan‘s Sundance entry, This Is Martin Bonner, quietly snuck up on audiences this past January, with the character-driven tale eventually picking up the Audience Award for the Best of NEXT section. Starring Paul Eenhoorn as the eponymous character, the film centers on Martin’s late-in-life transition from a full (but complicated) life on the East coast to a quiet and unassuming one in Reno. Bankrupt, Martin takes on his first job in two years – a volunteer gig that sees him helping newly released inmates transition back into normal life. In the course of his work, Martin makes an unexpected new friend in former prisoner Travis (Richmond Arquette), a relationship that is soon put to the test.

Get to know Martin, Travis, and their unexpectedly stirring collision in our exclusive first trailer for This Is Martin Bonner, after the break.

This Is Martin Bonner opens in limited release on June 28th, thanks to Monterey Media.
