This Is Martin Bonner
This Sundance Award Winning film tells about two men searching for a new life amidst an unspoken need for encouragement and support. After declaring bankruptcy, Martin Bonner uproots his life from the East Coast to Reno. He takes a new job as a church-based volunteer helping prisoners transition to freedom.
Released after 12 years in prison and now in the transition program, Travis Holloway is sent back into the world bankrupt of self-esteem and a normal life. Their lives surprisingly begin to converge, finding they have much in common until their unlikely friendship is put to the test when Travis betrays Martin's trust. Stars Paul Eenhoorn, Richmond Arquette, Sam Buchanan. Family edited version.
"No film in 2013 spoke to me more profoundly of hope, empathy, and spiritual thoughtfulness than this quietly miraculous little character study. It explores the enigma of faith with extraordinary insight."
