Patti Cake$ Film Review
7 September 2017 | by (Aberdeen, Scotland) – See all my reviews

The new drama film Patti Cake$ starring Danielle MacDonald, Bridget Everett, Siddharth Dhananjay.

PATTI CAKE$ introduces Australian native Danielle Macdonald (The East, Every Secret Thing) in a breakout role, as aspiring rapper Patricia Dombrowski, a.k.a. Killa P, a.k.a. Patti Cake$. Fighting an unlikely quest for glory in her downtrodden hometown in Jersey where her life is falling apart, Patti tries to reach the big time in the hip hop scene with original and affecting music. Cheered on by her grandmother Nana (American actress Cathy Moriarty - Raging Bull, Cop Land) and only friends, Jheri (Siddharth Dhananjay) who works in a pharmacy / chemist and Basterd (Mamoudou Athie - Jean Of The Joneses) who is a blind DJ, Patti also shoulders her mother Barb's (American actress Bridget Everett - Trainwreck, The Opposite Sex) heartaches and misfortunes.

Amongst the other actors / actresses in Patti Cake$ includes American actor McCaul Lombardi (American Honey, Age Of The Moon) as Danny, Patrick Brana (Straight Outta Tompkins) as Slaz, Dylan Blue (Just Like The Son, Deck The Halls) as Drewsky / Master of Ceremonies, American actor Warren Bub (American Fango, No One Lives Forever) as Mr. Bagadella, Ray Iannicelli (St. Vincent, Soldier's Heart) as Joe Puppy, American actress MC Lyte (Girls Trip, The Dempsey Sisters) as DJ French Tips, Alexandra Moruzzi as Young Patti, Sahr Ngaujah (Money Monster, Stomp The Yard) as O-Z, American actor Adam Scarimbolo (A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, Last Day Of Summer) as Pony, John Sharian (The Machinist, Lost In Space) as Lou and American actor Wass Stevens (John Wick: Chapter 2, The Wrestler) as Nickel.

Filming locations in Patti Cake$ includes cities, places like US State New Jersey and New York City which are only separated by the Hudson River.

Overall Patti Cake$ is a good drama film filled with drama, music, rap music, singing, swearing, tongue and cheek stuff, some sadness, family, friendship, falling outs, arguments, some funny moments, hip hop music, DJ's, people drinking, smoking, bonding and other things throughout the film.

So I will give Patti Cake$ an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars and Patti Cake$ is worth seeing if you like drama / rap music films along the lines as Patti Cake$.

So if you get the chance to see Patti Cake$ in the cinema then you should go and see it sooner than later.
