Synopsis 3 stars out of 4 -- Its sense of place and uniformly superb performances make it worth seeing, and maybe ultimately singing along with.[An] exuberant new musical comedy, a hearty feel-good stew of hip-hop and tough love served up by the writer-director Geremy Jasper.[A] big-hearted and astute debut film....Ms. Macdonald is quite simply a revelation, capturing the reflexive self-confidence and defensive diffidence of the millennial generation with sneaky sincerity and offhand wit.3 stars out of 4 -- Macdonald sells it, the predictable and the profane, as if her life depended on it.This movie is HUSTLE AND FLOW and 8 MILE, Jersey style....Macdonald is an absolute force as the twentysomething Patricia Dombrowski, who wakes up every morning determined and upbeat, even though her life path already looks to be a series of dead ends.4 stars out of 5 -- When the feelgood payoff comes, it feels genuinely fantastic...3 stars out of 5 -- [L]ikable, due to Australian star Danielle Macdonald, who brings some fierce charisma to the role of alienated Patricia Dombrowski...Patti is a force of nature, an avatar of girl power at its most spontaneous and ungovernable.An overweight young woman known as Patti Cake$ (Danielle Macdonald) nurtures her unlikely dreams of hip-hop superstardom while working as a caterer in a dull suburb of New Jersey. Although her alcoholic mother (Bridget Everett) is dismissive of her ambitions, Patti finally makes a breakthrough when she and a black punk rocker (Mamoudou Athie) collaborate on a song. PATTI CAKE$ was helmed by noted music-video director Geremy Jasper, who also wrote the screenplay and created 15 songs in a range of genres for the movie's soundtrack.
