Danielle Macdonald will rhyme her way into your heart in the new film “Patti Cake$”
New comer actress Danielle Macdonald stars as Patti Dombrowski, a bartender and part time caterer with hopes of being the new hit rapper in the film “Patti Cake$” Patti, aka Killa P aka Patti Cake$, with her band made up of her best friend and pharmacist Jheri (Siddharth Dhnanjay), homeless Satanist Basterd (Mamoudou Athie) and her grandma Nana (Cathy Moriarty) have dreams of making it big and getting out of New Jersey.
Patti is not the prototypical rapper, a white heavyset girl that reminds us of a female Eminem that the town ridicules calling her “Dumbo”. Patti is also taking care of her drunken mother who lives for her 80’s glory days singing on karaoke night at the bar where Patti works. Patti’s best friend and fellow rapper in their group PBNJ (Patti, Basterd, Nana, Jheri) Jheri believes in her and lines up a recording studio in the basement of a pet shop, but it all goes south when Patti freaks out after smoking some pot.
