Press Release

LOS ANGELES , CALIF. (March 22, 2007) – A funny and heartfelt story of two generations of hard-living blue collar workers trying to maintain their way of life in the face of change, Diggers releases on DVD May 1 st from Magnolia Home Entertainment.

An intimate nostalgic and bittersweet slice-of-life look at 1970s America , Diggers is “teeming with superb performances” ( Reel Film ) from its ensemble cast, including Paul Rudd ( Night At The Museum, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, “Friends”), Ken Marino ( Reno 911! Miami , “Veronica Mars”), Ron Eldard ( House of Sand and Fog, Freedomland, Black Hawk Down ), Josh Hamilton ( Broken English) , Sarah Paulson (“Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip”), Maura Tierney (“ER,” Insomnia ) and Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”).

Written by Marino and loosely based on his own life experiences, Diggers tenderly chronicles the story of a group of friends living and working in the Hamptons , who are forced to imagine a different life for themselves. With a corporate threat looming, the multi-generational clam diggers take stock of their humble trade and struggle to keep pace in a rapidly changing world.

“Winningly chart[ing] the end of an American way of life with unabashed nostalgia, macho swagger, four-letter words and a big heart,” (Michèle Maheux, Toronto International Film Festival)

Diggers debuts simultaneously on DVD, HDNet Movies and in theatres . The Diggers DVD will include the documentary “Baymen,” an insightful film about Long Island clam diggers, Outtakes/Deleted scenes, HDNet’s Higher Definition : Diggers Episode, and audio commentary with Director Katherine Dieckmann and Writer/Actor Ken Marino available for a suggested retail price of $29.98.
