The Rum Diary

Johnny Depp stars in a tale of comedy, intrigue and booze, adapted from the book by Hunter S. Thompson. Tiring of the madness of 1950s New York, journalist Paul Kemp re-locates to Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper.

But when Kemp is recruited by Sanderson to write favorably about his latest unsavory scheme, the journalist is presented with a choice: to use his words for the corrupt businessmen's financial benefit, or use them to take him down.

Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, the restaurant down the block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner. Surrounded on all sides by what she could become, Aura just wants someone to tell her who she is.
