8 Mile (2002)

8 Mile (2002, USA) C-110m. SCOPE ** D: Curtis Hanson. Starring Eminem, Kim Basinger, Mekhi Pfifer, Brittany Murphy, Evan Jones, Omar Benson Miller. Typical street drama about an underdog achieving fame features star rapper Eminem in a tailor-made role as a self-conscious white rapper, whose way to fame is difficult, also because of his social background. Basinger plays his trailer-trash mother. Might carry additional impact for Eminem fans, but otherwise, this lacks spark. Oscar winner for Best Song.
