Rapper Eminem stars as Jimmy 'Rabbit' Smith in a part largely based on his own experiences. 8 Mile Road is the stretch separating two parts of Detroit - the northern white suburbs and the mostly African-American south of the town. Rabbit, a factory worker, lives in a trailer park on the dividing strip. The film follows a week in his life as he struggles with relationships, with work and with his passion - competing at local rap battles. An unflinching look at life in the city, with a predictably brilliant soundtrack.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
