Film information

Story: Double bill of gritty urban realism from two very different cities on either side of the Atlantic. '8 Mile' is a stars controversial white rapper Eminem in his film debut, which is partly based on his own life. Jimmy Smith (Eminem), aka Rabbit to his friends, has grown up on the wrong side of 8 Mile Road in the industrial city of Detroit. After being dumped by his girlfriend, Rabbit has to move back in with his mother (Kim Basinger) and her new boyfriend, but does not get on with either of them. His only solace is rapping with the group of DJs and MCs, and he becomes convinced that music his only hope of getting out of the dead-end life he could end up living. 'Trainspotting' is an internationally successful adaptation of Irvine Welsh's cult Scottish novel, which was credited as heralding a renaissance in British film-making. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) is the most self-aware of a group of heroin addicts living in Edinburgh, even though his attempts to kick the habit are generally short-lived. Along with friends Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie (a psychotic Robert Carlyle), he roams the city looking for kicks and opportunities to finance his next fix.
