While I cannot speak for anyone else, this movie opened my eyes to the genius that is Eminem, as well as rap being a legitimate musical genre (I admit that it was not something I enjoyed too much - that has since changed... one of my current favourite musical acts is BC's own "Snotty Nose Rez Kids").

Though not purely autobiographical tale of Eminem, the movie does incorporate many aspects of the star's upbringing. His song, "Lose Yourself" - many would describe it as his signature song - went on to win the 2003 Oscar for Best Music, Original Song.

This movie is not at all suitable for children, so 18+ only. And please do know that there are some uncomfortable scenes, and harsh dialogue in this film, so if either of those would be an issue, please do not request a ticket.
