Description

Here’s a story for the you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up files. It’s the mid-2000s, rural North Carolina. John Wood, the thirtysomething son of a local business magnate, loses his leg in a plane crash; following his own brand of warped logic, he decides to preserve the detached appendage and store it inside his smoke cooker, which is later sold along with the rest of his possessions when he’s evicted from his home. Enter Shannon Whisnant, an enterprising bargain hunter, who buys said smoker in an auction and discovers the foot inside. You’ll have to see for yourself what happens from there, but let’s just say the story only gets crazier (hint: Shannon doesn’t return the foot, and the national media gets involved). The kind of crazy ride that can only happen in small-town America, with some of the most memorable characters you’ll see in any film this year, “Finders Keepers” ranks anong the funniest and most memorable films of the festival.
