Dir. Curtis Hanson, 2002, 111 mins. Restored 4K DCP. With Eminem, Brittany Murphy, Mekhi Phifer, Kim Basinger. A cinematic and musical triumph, 8 Mile boosted Eminem’s lyricism to new heights. The thrilling hit film focuses on B-Rabbit, an aspiring rapper who moves back home after a breakup and works to support his mother and sister in a trailer park. Energetically directed by Hanson (L.A. Confidential), Scott Silver’s screenplay drew from elements in Eminem’s real life: growing up near 8 Mile Rd in Michigan and competing in rap battles at The Shelter. Mixing a tense bass line with an underdog’s tale, “Lose Yourself” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2003.
