Sometimes the best way for people to truly discover who they presently are is to delve into the seemingly strange past of their relatives. That’s certainly the case for the main character in the new comedy, ‘Antiquities,’ which is now available on home release. In honor of the film’s distribution on major VOD platforms and DVD, ShockYa is premiering an exclusive clip, which is titled ‘Jimmy Lee.’
The video features the movie’s protagonist, Walt, who’s played by Andrew J. West, as he meets the clip’s title character. Walt instantly realizes that Jimmy Lee is a bit eccentric after Jimmy Lee invites Walt to sit down for a chat in what he calls his “little living room” in their local antique mall. While the protagonist tries to uncover some background information about his late father in his hometown, he soon discovers that the people of the community are well-meaning, but also unconventional in their social habits.
In addition to West, ‘Antiquities’ also stars Ashley Greene (‘The Twilight Saga’), Mary Steenburgen (‘Book Club,’ ‘Curb your Enthusiasm;), Michaela Watkins (‘Casual,’ ‘Saturday Night Live’) and Michael Gladis (‘Mad Men,’ ‘Feed the Beast’) The comedy was co-written and directed by Daniel Campbell.
