Land Ho 1

The thing about old men out on the open road is they don’t do a lot of eating, praying and loving in the way we’ve come to see it done in the modern sense of traveling. It’s more like they do a lot of finding the nearest roadside diner, complaining that gas prices are too damn high and pretending not to be too impressed by some national monuments. You’ve spent enough time in the back seat while Dad’s trying to navigate without a map to understand as much. But that doesn’t mean that old dudes don’t want to cut loose and take a trip that’s really about focusing on themselves every once in awhile. It’s healthy to get a little rest and relaxation here and there, especially when you’re curmudgeonly — something’s got to fuel that. So in the first trailer for Land Ho!, we’re treated to the best-laid vacation plans of octogenarian buddies Colin (Paul Eenhoorn) and Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson), an odd couple who are going to take Iceland by storm, whether one of them likes it or not. After Colin’s wife passes away, Mitch — clearly the fun friend if you measure your funometer by the wackiness of shirts — tries to cheer him up with a once in a lifetime opportunity: they’ll go on a guy’s trip to Iceland, first class, where they’ll see “the hot springs, the juicy lobsters, the gorgeous broads.” “I don’t like lobster,” Colin responds. Ahhhh I get it!



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.
