The setting is Detroit in 1995. The city is divided by 8 Mile, a road that splits the town in half along racial lines. A young white rapper, Jimmy "B-Rabbit" Smith Jr. summons strength within himself to cross over these arbitrary boundaries to fulfill his dream of success in hip hop. With his pal Future and the three one third in place, all he has to do is not choke.
A powerful narrative with a terrific soundtrack, based on his story.
This well rounded sampling offers a full range of narrative, music driven movies. Classics Purple Rain and The Blues Brothers share the stage with bio pics like Walk the Line and indie favorite Once. For music in film lovers.
