Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Directed and written by Bruce Robinson, THE RUM DIARY is from the mind of Hunter S. Thompson and follows Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp). Paul is a freelance journalist who is at a critical point in his life and rediscovers himself while writing for a newspaper in the Caribbean. While trying to garner more security in his life, Paul finds himself increasingly distracted by a group of mis-fits who seem bent on self-destruction. THE RUM DIARY opens in theaters on October 28, 2011 and stars: Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi and Richard Jenkins. Check out the trailer below.
I know Hunter S. Thompson has a very dedicated following, but he’s just not my cup of tea. However, THE RUM DIARY looks entertaining and is set in a good location so I’m looking forward to it. It definitely has a great cast so surely it won’t be too bad, right?
