LEONARDO DICAPRIO IS JIM
Leonardo DiCaprio played a fantastic role in 1995 The Basketball Diaries film adaptation of poet and musician Jim Carroll´s autobiographical juvenile days, published in 1978. DiCaprio is a New York City teen who at the height of his high school basketball career, falls victim to drugs and violence.
The dark streets of NYC become a refuge from his mother’s mounting concern for her son. He cannot go home and his only escape from the reality of the streets is heroin for which he steals, robs and prostitutes himself. Only with the help of Reggie, an older neighborhood friend with whom Jim picked up a game now and then, is he able to begin the long journey back to sanity.
One of the craziest scenes comes when Jim and one of his friends jump from a cliff just wearing boxer shorts and All Stars sneakers. This character has been brought to our Boxer Union collection with a smart model that mixes a white poplin waist and chambre body, classic and fresh fabrics together.
