The Rum Diary

From today's New York Times:

""The Rum Diary," based on an early novel of the same title by Hunter S. Thompson, will appeal to anyone who harbors romantic ideas about liquor, newspaper journalism or that mythical late-Eisenhower, early Kennedy "Mad Men" time when the '60s were getting ready to happen. Connoisseurs of straw hats and cool sunglasses will find much to savor, as will aficionados of guilt-free cigarette smoking and middays boozing."

Sounds like an Oscar winner to me...
