Fed up with life in her New Jersey hometown, Patricia Dombrowski, aka Patti Cake$, hopes to follow in the footsteps of her idol and hit the road to achieve stardom as a rapper.
Direct from the Sundance and Cannes film festivals, this bold, funny and infectiously upbeat coming-of-age crowd-pleaser introduces you to a very different sort of superhero – Patricia Dombrowski, a New Jersey girl who dreams of becoming superstar rapper ‘Killa P’. Despite being held back by her mother – whose own musical aspirations have long since been shelved – and her soul-crushing job at the local bar, the self-styled Killa is determined that her voice will be heard, enlisting faithful sidekick Jheri and mysterious goth-metal noisemaker Basterd to help her create tracks that even the haters can’t ignore.
Starring Danielle Macdonald, Bridget Everett, Siddharth Dhananjay, Mamoudou Athie, Cathy Moriarty, McCaul Lombardi
Cannes Film Festival 2017 – Nominated Golden Camera
Sundance Film Festival Official Selection
“A story we’ve seen told a hundred times before feels fresh thanks to Danielle Macdonald’s brilliant performance, handling both the drama and the rapping in style.” – Hamish McBain, Empire
“This is what feel good cinema looks like and it’s plus-size, trashy and full of attitude.” – Wendy Ide, Observer (UK)
PATTI CAKE$ is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
