Detroit, 1995. A brilliant and promising policy of industrial development in the city fails and leads to chaos and confusion, resulting in one of the most serious conflicts in American history between whites and people of color. People who lived peacefully side by side find themselves on opposite sides of the barricades.
The 8 Mile Highway, separating Detroit from the suburbs, becomes the dividing line between blacks and whites. What’s happening in the city is reflected in the music. In the poor suburban neighborhoods, where survival is the main goal, for many residents hip-hop becomes an emotional outlet, a means of escaping the harsh reality of everyday life.

To be honest, I still can’t quite understand what attracts me to this movie. The plot is typical, the development of action is predictable. Maybe the actors are to blame (I adore them).
But then I realized that I’m fairly objective in my assessment of this film. It’s very close to the life that surrounds us, it doesn’t embellish anything. Everything is as it is, without any extra gloss. It couldn’t have been any other way: Em knows firsthand what the street is like and how hard it is to survive where you are hated; to remain yourself and not become someone’s bitch.
The film touches you madly. You sincerely empathize with the characters and don’t understand how people can be so cruel and unfair. My first time watching “8 Mile” was with a terrible translation. But that’s ok, thanks to my familiarity with English. The crude, harsh language hurt my ears, and at first I was puzzled – cinema is a cultural phenomenon. But my conclusion was hasty. The street could not be different.
