Spenser Confidential - Mark Wahlberg | Official Trailer | Netflix Film.
Boston police detective Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) arrives with his partner, Driscoll (Bokeem Woodbine), to the home of Captain John Boylan (Michael Gaston). While questioning Boylan about concerns he had regarding the murder investigation of a woman named Gloria Wiesnewski, Spenser catches sight of Mrs. Boylan's bloody face and reacts violently, beating Boylan senseless. Spenser is brought up on multiple charges as a result of this incident, to which he pled guilty, and was sentenced to prison for his actions.
During his time incarcerated in MCI Cedar Junction, Spenser studies to become a truck driver and, after five years he is released from prison. Shortly before his release, Spenser is assaulted in the prison library by three fellow inmates in an attempt to warn him to leave Boston and never return. Spenser is met outside the prison by his friend Henry Cimoli (Alan Arkin), who came to pick him up, though his ex, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), puts in a surprise appearance, and he flees the scene with Henry to avoid her. The duo drive to Cimoli's residence in South Boston where Spenser is reunited with his former partner, Driscoll, and Spenser's dog Pearl. Spenser takes up residence in Henry's home with his roommate, Hawk (Winston Duke), while he prepares for his new career and a planned move to Arizona.
At night, Boylan is driving while talking to his daughter over the phone, when he gets a second call summoning him to a mysterious meeting at a bus yard. Boylan continues his conversation with his daughter, helping her with her homework, and upon his arrival at the yard an SUV intentionally collides with his car. Boylan is then dragged from the vehicle by hooded men armed with machetes and murdered, with his daughter a helpless witness via the car's handsfree mobile phone capability. The next morning, Detective Terrence Graham (Brandon Scales) is discovered dead with a gunshot wound to the head in his SUV (the same SUV used to ram Boylan's car) by his wife, Letitia (Hope Olaide Wilson), upon her arrival home from work.
