Newcomer Danielle Macdonald stars as aspiring rapper Patricia Dombrowski—AKA Killa P, AKA Patti Cake$—in the first feature film from acclaimed commercial and music video director Geremy Jasper. Fighting an unlikely quest for glory in her downtrodden hometown in New Jersey where her life is falling apart, Patti tries to reach the big time in the hip hop scene with original and affecting music. Cheered on by her grandmother (Cathy Moriarty) and only friends, Jheri (Siddharth Dhananjay) and Basterd (Mamoudou Athie), Patti also shoulders her mother’s (Bridget Everett) heartaches and misfortunes.
Set in gritty strip-mall suburbia, Patti Cake$ chronicles an underdog's quest for fame and glory with humour, raw energy and unforgettable beats.
Patti Cake$, dir. Geremy Jasper, USA 2017, 109 mins
