About this item

In a performance hailed by critics across the country, Leonardo DiCaprio ("Titanic," "What's Eating Gilbert Grape") stars as Jim Carroll, a high school basketball hero headed for trouble. Teamed with his friends, Mickey (Mark Wahlberg of "Boogie Nights"), Neutron and Pedro, Jim seems headed for a bright basketball career. But when pressures from his coach (Bruno Kirby), his mom (Lorraine Bracco) and school begin to mount, Jim finds solace in all the wrong places, and the dark streets of New York begin to tear him apart. "The Basketball Diaries" is a riveting story of one boy's life on the edge.

Customer review by jay23

5.0 stars by jay23

this movie is an amazing look into the reality of drug abuse. it is definetly not for children under the age of 16, because it has some very strong adult content. but this movie really goes deep into the lives of drug addicts and what other go through as a part of their lives... this movie comes highly recommended...i cant praise it enough.

This is not for children under 16 but very good movie. Leo should have won an Oscar for his role but he didn't. I just bought this movie today (1-15-09). Before I bought it I have rented this movie and have seen it over 100 times (no lie). Will watch it even more. It reminds us how bad life could be, and does not make drugs cool. Please watch it:)
