Patti Cake$

Two stars are born in PATTI CAKE$, one of those rare crowdpleasers that earn their love honestly. The first is the sensational Danielle Macdonald, who plays the second: the movie’s title character, also known as Patricia Dombrowski, a poor white New Jersey rapper who, with her tiny diverse posse yearns to cross the bridge to fame and fortune. Written and directed by Geremy Jasper, the movie treads familiar aspirational ground: Patricia has dreams, pluck and obstacles (she’s routinely taunted because of her weight), but her outsider status isn’t fetishized or romanticized, and she’s divinely real.
