Bruce Robinson writes and directs this drama based on the debut novel of Hunter S. Thompson. Johnny Depp, who also co-produces the film, stars as burned-out vagrant freelance journalist Paul Kemp, who leaves his life in New York behind and heads off south to work for a local newspaper in San Juan, Puerto Rico. There he adopts the debauched, liquor-soaked lifestyle of Hemingway's 'Lost Generation' and develops an unhealthy obsession with Chenault (Amber Heard), the beautiful fiancee of shady property developer Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart).
