The rousing, crowd-pleasing Patti Cake$ features a heroic performance by Australian actress Danielle Macdonald in a breakout role as indomitable, if unorthodox aspiring rapper Patricia Dombrowski: aka Killa P, aka Patti Cake$.

Fighting an unlikely quest for glory in her downtrodden Jersey hometown, Patti remains determined to battle the haters and conquer the hip hop scene with her original and affecting music. Crackling with authenticity, infectious energy and full of heart, US writer-director Geremy Jasper's feature debut celebrates his heroine's outsider status.

Patti Cake$ contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
