Discussion About 8 Mile

  1. Natasha

    One of the most unique scripts that I’ve seen to date. The ending rap battle still haunts me.

    • Stephanie Palmer

      Thanks, Natasha.

  2. LW

    This script is an absolute page-turner. You feel immersed in the language and rhythms of the world, and even though you know it’s not documentary or autobiographical, you believe it. The only bad part is that it ends.

    • Stephanie Palmer

      Agreed, LW.

  3. Deb

    A loosely biographical film, it’s a great read. The rap numbers are brilliant! The pacing and rhythm of the words, as well as the content itself, gives a bit of a reprieve from an otherwise very dark and heavy film
