On the day of his college graduation, Preston Plummer cannot think of a single thing he really loves. Adrift, Preston follows a beautiful but troubled young woman, Kate Cather, to a small island town where he begins to fall for her. Their relationship is soon threatened when he uncovers her family's dark past.
In The Diary of Preston Plummer, rising star Trevor Morgan (Mean Creek, Off the Black), delivers a thoughtful and intense performance as Preston Plummer, who struggles to understand the unexplained tension in Kate’s family.
Rumer Willis (Sorority Row) beautifully portrays conflicted ingenue Kate who is forced to confront her past as she falls in love for the first time.
Kate's grandfather John is desperate to repair his relationship with Kate. This desperation is expertly depicted by Academy Award-nominated actor Robert Loggia, known for his heart-stopping characters in Scarface and Lost Highway.
Kate's parents, Emily and Walter Cather, shrewdly played by Tony nominee Erin Dilly and Breaking Bad's Christopher Cousins, attempt to reconcile their love for their daughter with their family's difficult history.
Writer/director/producer Sean Ackerman and producer Jane Kelly Kosek dreamt of shooting this film amidst the breathtaking beauty of Amelia Island, Florida, and in the Atlantic waters off its coast. They spent over a decade developing the project and finally realized their dream the summer of 2010.
