Vividly-shot indie takes on heavy themes of rape, suicide.

One of the best things about the movie is the specificity of its universe - it feels like a personal story, told with an eye to getting the details right.

Audience Reviews for The Diary Of Preston Plummer

There is a edge that well shot independent movies will always hold over big production movies and this falls into the first perfectly. The movie is well told and has perfect imagery. A few moments near the end of the movie between daughter and mother feel a little like a soap opera but otherwise a quality film worth your time.

It's a pretty unremarkable movie...I didn't hate it, there really wasn't anything bad about it or anything particularly good. The only thing I liked about it is that I've been to Amelia Island and found sharks teeth on Fernandina Beach so I had a few "I've been there" moments. It didn't even have that Lifetime made for TV thing going for just kind of meanders on until the sufficient length of time a movie should end was reached and big surprise, she hammers a nail.

The Diary of Preston Plummer is a low budget movie with a $125,000 spent to make it. The movie is slow and small on scale which could be the reason for its obscurity to the public, but this is a well made drama worth viewing. The Dairy of Preston Plummer follows the title character life when he falls in love with a young woman and threatens to lose that love when uncovering his love dark past. This film is a love story at it core with deeper layers of meaning when the movie unfolds. The love story is a bit hard to buy since it falls in the "We've only know each other for about 60 minutes" category. The plot itself does not explore new territory of any kind. It has a plot thread about greed and money we've seen a dozen time in the genre. The characters themselves are likable and become more developed through the course of the movie. It is slow by a big stretch as we tend to see the shame shot for a very long time and sometimes our character get sidetrack from the main plot talking about events that are meaningless to the main plot. The acting is fairly decent for a low budget movie. The cast has good chemistry with one another and Trevor Morgan is a enjoyable lead. Though Trevor Morgan does look like Robert Pattinson, except Trevor can act. The film is shot well, but you get the feeling the material was long enough despite its hour and twenty minute run time. You'll probably get tire seeing the same scenery more than once, but this is an indie film worth checking out. It's a drama, with a love story, and mystery to for our character to unfold come together to bring us a satisfying experience. The Diary of Preston Plummer is an above average drama that makes for a option to pass the time with. It might be anything great, but it is an indie you will have good with.
