This Is Martin Bonner

Wednesday, August 14 - Thursday, August 22, 2013

A favorite at Sundance, Hartigan’s moving, lyrical, intimate meditation on connection and second chances evokes the best character studies of 1970s American cinema. Divorced with adult children, Martin relocates to Reno to start over, in a new job helping prisoners adjust to life on the outside. He meets the world-weary Travis, just released from a 12-year stint in jail, and immediately forms a surprising bond. But when Travis suddenly betrays Martin’s trust, their new friendship is put to the test.
