About the Film
Loosely based on the memoir of the same name, The Basketball Diaries is a retelling of Jim Carroll’s life. Poet, musician and fallen basketball star – Carroll is a man of many trades. From his daily life and sexual experiences to his heroin addiction and high school basketball career, Carroll’s story is told with wry humour, masterful acting and a soundtrack written by Carroll himself.
