Fed up with life in her New Jersey hometown, Patricia Dombrowski, aka Patti Cake$, hopes to follow in the footsteps of her idol and hit the road to achieve stardom as a rapper

Direct from the Sundance and Cannes film festivals, this bold, funny and infectiously upbeat coming-of-age crowd-pleaser introduces you to a very different sort of superhero – Patricia Dombrowski, a New Jersey girl who dreams of becoming superstar rapper ‘Killa P’. Despite being held back by her mother – whose own musical aspirations have long since been shelved – and her soul-crushing job at the local bar, the self-styled Killa is determined that her voice will be heard, enlisting faithful sidekick Jheri and mysterious goth-metal noisemaker Basterd to help her create tracks that even the haters can’t ignore

“A story we’ve seen told a hundred times before feels fresh thanks to Danielle Macdonald’s brilliant performance, handling both the drama and the rapping in style.” – Empire

“This is what feel good cinema looks like and it’s plus-size, trashy and full of attitude.” – Observer
