This Is Martin Bonner

Directed by Chad Hartigan, Nominated for the John Cassavetes Award

Part of 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards Screenings

Two men search, in their quiet solitude, to begin a new life amid an unspoken need for encouragement and support. Martin Bonner has just moved to Reno from the East Coast, leaving behind his two adult children and a life he spent more than two decades building. Having recently declared bankruptcy, he’s working a new job as a volunteer helping prisoners transition to freedom. It’s Martin’s first job in two years. Travis Holloway, a recently released prisoner sent back into the world with nothing, also finds life difficult to adjust to. Their lives and stories begin to converge as the two men find that they have much in common, but their unlikely friendship is put to the test when a trust is betrayed. 2013, US, 83 minutes.
