THE QUITTER, opens in limited theatrical release on Friday, September 12th. When a failed baseball player’s (Matthew Bonifacio) ex-girlfriend (Julianna Gelinas Bonifacio) moves back to the neighborhood with her seven-year-old daughter (Destiny Monet Cruz), he realizes he carries more regrets than how he handled his baseball career. What follows is his earnest, awkward, and at times hilarious fight to become the father he never was. Directed by Matthew Bonifacio (“Lbs.”) from a script by Bill Gullo (“+ 1”). With Neil Jain, Deirdre O’Connell, Dan Grimaldi, Jack O’Connell, Erin Darke, Henry Vick, Joshua Rivera and a cameo by Natasha Lyonne.
This story is something that just about anyone can relate to. What regrets do you have? Well Jonathan was a baseball player at the time he and Georgie broke up. She was pregant and moved away while he followed his aspirations. Now that she has come back with her daughter, it is clear he is her father. As a child of divorced parents – they both had to make sacrifices and in this film, Goergie definitely made sacrifices to raise her daughter alone. Now Jonathan wants to be in Luka’s life. But he has always quit what he was involved in – this time he is determined to make it all work.
