8 Mile 1S Rating 4 out of 5


  • Curtis Hanson


  • Eminem
  • Kim Basinger
  • Brittany Murphy
  • Mekhi Phifer


Showing trademark confidence and a remarkable gift for subtlety, Eminem makes his movie debut in this almost-biography as a troubled rapper trying to make his mark on Detroit's fiercely competitive music scene. Not easy when you're a poor white kid with a little sister and a deadbeat mother to take care of. With Kim Basinger playing it down and trashy as Ma and the late Brittany Murphy as the more supportive lady in his life, it's easy to lose yourself. It picked up an Oscar for best song.
