Dir. Jim Sheridan. 2005, 117 mins. 35mm. With 50 Cent, Joy Bryant, Terrence Howard. The incomparable Jamaica, Queens–born rap legend 50 Cent stars in this semi-autobiographical film, which boasts the same name as his nine-time platinum album—released 20 years ago. With direction from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot), Get Rich or Die Tryin’ chronicles the rags-to-riches story of Marcus Greer, who transforms the trauma and grief of his tumultuous upbringing into art that propels him into stardom. As with all success stories, Marcus’s toughest challenges arise when the life he thought he left behind resurfaces, putting at risk all that he’s worked towards.
