FilmDistrict held the World Premiere of THE RUM DIARY, October 13th at LACMA in Los Angeles. This was part of Film Independent at LACMA.
THE RUM DIARY is based on the debut novel of Hunter S. Thompson and tells the story of itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp). Fed up with the noise and madness of New York he travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper, The San Juan Star. Paul soon becomes use to the rum-soaked life of the island and lands up being obsessed with Chenault (Amber Heard). Chenault, an attractive Connecticut-born fiancée to Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart), a businessman involved in shady property development deals. Recruited by Sanderson to write favorable about his latest unsavory scheme, Kemp is presented with a choice: to use his words for the financial benefit of Sanderson, or use them to take the bastards down.
Seen on the carpet were the stars of the film, which included: Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Rispoli, Bill Smitrovich, Karimah Westbrook, Bruce Robinson (Writer/Director), Graham King (Producer), and Christopher Young (Composer).
