One of the more entertaining and buzzed about documentaries at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival is finally heading to a theater near you. “Finders Keepers” centers on a dispute over a mummified leg that was discovered in a grill purchased by Shannon Whisnant at a North Carolina auction. Whisnant's problem is that it turns out the limb's original owner, John Wood, is still alive and wants his foot back. That's a pretty humorous and almost too bizarre to be true scenario for any big screen doc, but there's significantly more to the story.
“Despite a very reasonable running time of under 90 minutes, 'Finders Keepers' digs underneath its initial craziness and finds two very real, damaged humans at the center. 'Finders Keepers' may, indeed, be stranger-than-fiction, but it's finally significantly less strange and far more relatable than you would initially guess or perhaps fear.”
The Orchard, which acquired the film out of Park City, is releasing “Keepers” on Sept. 25 and has provided HitFix with an exclusive look at it's official poster which you can enjoy below.
