About Patti Cake$
Patti Cake$ introduces the brilliant Danielle Macdonald as Patricia Dombrowski, a.k.a. Killa P, a.k.a. Patti Cake$. This gritty but heartwarming tale of a working class girl's struggle to find her voice in the rap music scene has been widely praised by the critics for its emotion and uplift. Despite feeling formulaic and predictable at times, Patti Cake$ ultimately keeps us engaged. This is a feel-good tale through-and-through. However, because of the aesthetic, setting and the uniquely talented Macdonald, it doesn't feel cloying and artificial.
