In Drama, Movies on June 27, 2013 at 10:45 PM

8 Mile (2002) is a dark drama directed by Curtis Hanson about Jimmy ‘B-Rabbit’ Smith (Eminem), a Detroit factory worker struggling to become a professional rapper while living in a trailer with his alcoholic mother Stephanie (Kim Basinger) and baby sister Lily (Chloe Greenfield).

Life Lesson:

Own the moment; seize the opportunity. Don’t wait for someone to rescue you.

Movie Scene:

Jimmy: “What’s gotten into you?”

Stephanie: “We’re not gettin’ evicted.”

Jimmy: “Why not?”

Stephanie: “I went to bingo. And I won! Thirty-two hundred!”

Jimmy: “You’re kidding me!”

Stephanie: “Nope. Our luck’s finally changing around here… Did you mean what you said about doin’ that demo with Wink?”

Jimmy: “No. I’m gonna do it on my own.”

Stephanie: “You know, Rabbit? I think that’s the best way.”
