Macdonald stars as Patricia Dombrowski, aka Killa P, aka Patti Cake$, an aspiring rapper who believes herself to be a once in a lifetime hip hop star on an unlikely quest for glory. Unlikely because she doesn’t look like any star you’ve ever seen, and is from a downtrodden town in New Jersey filled with gritty strip malls and broken lives. But don’t dare be a hater and tell Patti that she doesn’t have what it takes to succeed: she’s not listening.
The engaging first feature from director Geremy Jasper – who pulled from his own upbringing in New Jersey for Patti’s story – PATTI CAKE$ provides an irresistible beat that the raw, exciting talent of Macdonald is more than capable of turning into a hit.
