Minamata Movie - Johnny Depp

Plot synopsis:
“With the glory days of World War II far behind him W. Eugene Smith (Johnny Depp) has become a recluse, disconnected from society and his career. But an old friend and a commission from “Life Magazine” editor (Bill Nighy) convinces him to journey back to Japan to expose a big story: the devastating annihilation of a coastal community, victims of corporate greed and complicit local police and government. Armed with only his trusted camera, Smith must gain the trust of this struggling community and find the images that will bring the story to the World. The victims’ case against the corporation responsible for this environmental disaster represents one of the biggest payouts of all time, with present day sufferers of Minamata disease still in court today seeking compensation. Production has spent time in Minamata meeting some of the victims and their families and the film is being made with their support.”

Johnny Depp is holding his camera like a real professional, isn’t he?

The film is directed by Andrew Levitas.

No official release date yet.

Johnny Depp In Minamata (2020)

Plot synopsis:
“Johnny Depp plays celebrated war photographer W. Eugene Smith in a real life David vs Goliath story, pitting Smith against a powerful corporation responsible for poisoning the people of Minamata – Japan in 1971.
With the glory days of World War II far behind him Smith has become a recluse, disconnected from society and his career. But an old friend and a commission from ‘Life Magazine’ editor Ralph Graves convince him to journey back to Japan to expose a big story: the devastating annihilation of a coastal community, victims of corporate greed and complicit local police and government.
Armed with only his trusted Nikon camera, Smith must find the images that will bring this story to the World. At first, no one wants to help him and his enemies wish him dead, a new threat at every corner. But to finally stop hiding behind the lens and earn this broken community’s trust may prove to be Smith’s greatest challenge.
MINAMATA is an extremely moving redemptive story of how one man’s powerful photograph impacted the world to take action; yet in order to find it he had to open his heart.”

Does Johnny Depp look the part as a photojournalist?
