The larky spirit of camaraderie lingers long after the haze of the film's many passed joints dissipates.

As befits a heartfelt ode to working-class values, Diggers puts in lots of hard, honest work that finally pays off in a wholly predictable yet unexpectedly moving conclusion.

Audience Reviews for Diggers

Cast: Paul Rudd, Maura Tierney, Lauren Ambrose, Ron Eldard, Josh Hamilton, Ken Marino, Sarah Paulson Director: Katherine Dieckmann Summary: A coming-of-age story about a group of friends who reluctantly follow in their families' footsteps and face what they deem a bleak existence as clam diggers on Long Island. Directed by Katherine Dieckmann, this touching dramedy follows the companions as they struggle to cope with their predestined futures while dreaming of better lives. My Thoughts: "Talented cast, great acting, and a good script, makes this Indie film one to see. The story is about friendship, family, and change. The film has relatively and likeable character's. It's also funny, but at times a bit slow. But I enjoyed the characters. I found them to be realistic and full of heart. In this film Paul Rudd plays a more serious role, and it was a nice change from all his more comedic roles. I thought he was great. I also thought Ken Marino gave a great performance as well. I thought it was a great Indie flick."
