" back in 2009.
The clip takes a look at the turbulent times between Eminem and his mom before a moving reunion. It includes personal footage and photos of Marshall Mathers' childhood growing up in the Detroit neighborhood of 8 Mile. "It's a great, great story. It's heartfelt, some pain in it, but that's life," said Lee about the visual. "So that's why we're here, back in the 'hood, 8 Mile Detroit, shooting where all this took place."
