RHYTHMS ON & OFF THE SCREEN

Patti Cake$

GEREMY JASPER
USA, 2016
108 minutes, Color
Official website

Patricia "Killa P" Dombrowski drafts rhymes behind the bar at a dingy dive, trying to pay off her coarse but beloved Nana's medical bills and support her hard-drinking mom, whose own musical aspirations failed long ago. Patti and her rap partner/best friend Jheri share dreams of fame, fortune, and escaping New Jersey for good, but they haven't found a producer with the "fire beats" they need. Unbroken by the taunts of local goons, Patti unexpectedly gravitates to a reclusive goth-metal musician named Basterd, a newcomer who just might be able to help her achieve hip-hop superstardom. The spectacularly talented Danielle MacDonald portrays Patricia with an intoxicating mixture of swagger, vulnerability, and inner strength. First-time feature director Geremy Jasper unleashes a film as full of infectious energy and enthusiasm as its protagonist, daring us not to fall in love with a force of nature like Patti Cake$.—Sundance Film Festival
