Before his star-making performance in 'Titanic,' a young Leonardo DiCaprio drew raves for his gritty portrayal of poet-punk rocker Jim Carroll in 'The Basketball Diaries.' Now, the critically acclaimed 1995 indie film is on Blu-ray! Carroll became a cult author and the man behind the punk hit "People Who Died," but before that he was a promising basketball player until he was sidelined by drugs; 'The Basketball Diaries' chronicles Carroll's path to destruction. Mark Wahlberg, Ernie Hudson, Michael Imperioli, Juliette Lewis and Lorraine Bracco also star.
Special features include a Jim Carroll interview and poetry reading and interviews with the cast and director Scott Kalvert.
