Description:
  Jamaica Man is a subjective documentary profile of British expat Nigel Pemberton. Directed by Michael Weatherly, this biographical picaresque is a highly stylized and unconventional portrait of a raconteur nearing the end of his life.

"There are worse things to be stuck with than passion.” On the breathtaking expanse of Bamboo Pen, his 450-acre estate, the famed tropical realtor and perfect Englishman Nigel Pemberton shares his memories of a life as colorful and lush as the Jamaican landscape.

He served as a soldier in Malaysia during World War II, had a whirlwind romance by the sea, crippling losses on land, then witnessed both the shocking brutality of Jamaican street law and Peter Sellers being rendered unresponsive by a girlfriend’s karate move.

Director Michael Weatherly balances Pemberton’s cinematic tales with his simple day-to-day life, layering a series of lively vignettes that, piece by piece, thread together a portrait of an ageless soul who still embraces life’s potentials." –FA
