Chris' Film Club: 8 Mile
This week the Film Club theme is 'Musicians turned Actors' so I've picked Eminem's big screen appearance in 8 Mile. Eminem plays an aspiring rapper from a tough background, so he has clearly gone with what he knows, but he brings a determined intensity to the role and he even picked up an Oscar for the song 'Lose Yourself'. The film also stars Kim Basinger, Mekhi Phifer and Brittany Murphy.
