Writer/director Chad Hartigan's second feature (after 2008's "Luke and Brie are on a First Date") "This is Martin Bonner" received plenty of attention at Sundance this year, where it won the Audience Award for Best of NEXT.

Starring Paul Eenhoom and Richmond Arquette (whose performances were praised), the film follows the titular character (Eenhoom), a 50-something man who moves to Reno and takes a job helping transition newly released prisoners back into the real world. Arquette plays one such prisoner, who soon forms a tight bond with Bonner.

Monterey Media, who of late have handled such notable films as Guy Maddin's "Keyhole" and Monte Hellman's "Road to Nowhere," just announced that it's acquired the film, with plans for a late summer theatrical distribution before an awards-season push attempt in the fall.
