In a performance hailed by critics across the country, Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jim Carroll, a high-school basketball hero headed for trouble. Teamed with his friends, Mickey (Mark Wahlberg), Neurtron 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.

A young rebel looking for exciting, a boy out of control and hoping to try new things and live life on the edge. His journey takes him from games of basketball and petty crimes to his downward spiral into hell, this movie takes you along on his journey to feel the pain and horror. It's written well, it keeps you watching from start to finish and makes you care about the characters. The directing has been well executed and really makes you feel like you're a part of the scene. The movie is powerful and gets the message across, it's touching at times and will really make you sit back and think about things in life. Good movie, Recommended
