This week’s film is 8 Mile (2002, US, d. Curtis Hanson) featuring the late Brittany Murphy and Kim Basinger alongside l’enfant terrible, Eminem. The film features the rapper’s hit ‘Lose Yourself’ – which he can be seen writing the lyrics on his hand in the film poster. It was the first film to have a rap/hip-hop song win an Academy Award.
Eminem stars as B-Rabbit, a wannabe rapper from the wrong side of Detroit’s 8 Mile, whose life is spiralling out of control. Everything hinges on the next rap showdown at the club – but can he make the grade?
