Review
Jimmy Smith Jr lives on the rough side of the Detroit tracks, his only focus is his music, the only passion he experiences that isn't fuelled by anger. Jimmy has one chance to escape his futureless existence, he has the courage and the talent but can he succeed where so many others have failed? Phew, that sounds the way a badly run sewage plant must smell, but this is a powerful and gripping drama from the director of LA Confidential and a semi autobiographical journey for Eminem in which he proves himself almost as adept in front of the camera as he is behind the mike.
