Based on the debut novel by the late, great Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary tells the tale of quirky journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp). Tiring of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper, The San Juan Star, run by downtrodden editor Lotterman (Richard Jenkins). Due to a mass amount of booze, insanity ensues. Do it.
