Item description
From All Movie Guide Controversial rap star Eminem makes his acting debut in this hard-edged urban drama. inspired in part by incidents from the musicians own life. Jimmy Smith (Eminem). known to his friends as Rabbit. is a young man trying to make his way out of the burned-out shell of inner-city Detroit. Rabbits entire life has been a hard climb. and it certainly hasnt gotten any easier lately; Rabbit has just been dumped by his girlfriend. forcing him to move back in with his emotionally unstable mother. Stephanie (Kim Basinger). and hes getting along especially poorly with Stephanies new boyfriend. Rabbit has a factory job thats tough. demeaning. and doesnt pay especially well. and hes convinced his skills as a rapper are his only real hope at a better life. Rabbit makes music with a crew of DJs and MCs who call themselves Three One Third. among them his close friend Future (Mekhi Phifer). but his status as a white kid making music in a predominantly African-American community and culture is extremely intimidating. and after Rabbit freezes up in the midst of an MC battle. hes convinced hes missed his chance and that hes doomed to lead a marginal life as a factory rat for the rest of his days. With the help of his friends. and his new girlfriend Alex (Brittany Murphy). Rabbit struggles to work up the courage and the confidence to take one more shot at making his dream a reality. 8 Mile was shot on location in Detroit; the name refers to 8 Mile Road. a thoroughfare along the citys perimeter which effectively separates the middle-class suburban neighborhoods from the lower-class inner-city.
