The Rum Diary (out Mar 15) is based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson and follows a American journalist who has moved to Puerto Rico and accepted a position with a struggling newspaper. The performances are great but I expected more from the story. For the most part, it’s just plodding along with the occasional dash of humour. Grade: B-.
