The Rum Diary

About the movie

The Rum Diary is an adaptation from a novel written by Hunter S. Thompson by the same name. The movie depicts the highly unhinged story of an itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp) who tired of the noise and madness of New York City and the crushing conventions of the Eisenhower era travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local San Juan newspaper run by the downtrodden editor Edward Lotterman (Richard Jenkins). Adopting the rum-soaked lifestyle of the late `50s version of Ernest Hemingway`s ``The Lost Generation``, Paul gets romantically involved with a very attractive American woman, Chenault (Amber Heard) while her fiance Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart) is a businessman involved in shady property development deals. It is within this world that Kemp ultimately discovers his true voice as a writer and integrity as a man.
