Question regarding checksuming of a file

I need to generate checksums of a file, store the value in a variable,
and pass it along for later comparison.
The MD5 module would seem to do the trick but I'm sketchy on implementation.
The nearest I can see would be
contents = open(self.file_name,"rb").read()
However this does not appear to be actually returning the checksum.
Does anyone have insight into where I am going wrong?
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
