Diggers (2007) Trailer
Trailer for Diggers.
Diggers combines humor and pathos in a bittersweet story about a tightly-knit cluster of friends, all of whom are forced to embrace change as their small-town way of life is soon to be altered forever.
Its September 1976 on the south shore of Long Island. Ads on the TV in the local bar announce a change coming over America with the upcoming Ford-Carter presidential election, but local clam diggers are more worried about losing their already-fragile trade to an encroaching corporation.
Like his father and grandfather before him, Hunt (Paul Rudd) is a digger, but one with a restless, imaginative side exemplified by the black-and-white Polaroids he takes. Hunts lifelong buddies and fellow diggers include Frankie Lozo (Ken Marino), a brash father struggling to support five kids and his longsuffering but spunky wife, Julie (Sarah Paulson); laid-back local ladies man Jack (Ron Eldard); and philosophy-spouting pot dealer Cons (Josh Hamilton).
A sudden death propels the four best friends to look at their lives, as it does for Hunts recently-divorced (and Hite Report-reading) older sister, Gina (Maura Tierney), who works as a waitress at the local diner. Meanwhile, Hunt falls for a hip young woman visiting from Manhattan, Zoe (Lauren Ambrose), who wonders why his artistic impulses dont propel him out of a dead-end town.
