PATTI CAKE$

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

Pa­tri­cia Dom­browski (Danielle Mac­don­ald) is a young woman with no prospects who is liv­ing in a run­down town in New Jer­sey. With noth­ing to lose, she de­cides to chase the Amer­i­can dream by rein­vent­ing her­self as Killa P or Patti Cake$ (de­pend­ing on the day), and at­tempt­ing a ca­reer as a rap­per. She’s got skills, but she doesn’t have many re­sources or the con­ven­tional good looks of women per­form­ers who make it to the big time. But she’s not about to let that stop her. Rated R. 108 min­utes. Vi­o­let Crown. (Not re­viewed)
