Patti Cake$ (Afternoon Movie)
In a coming-of-age story straight out of Jersey, an unlikely rapper finds her voice as a one-of-a-kind hip-hop legend in the making in PATTI CAKE$, the first feature film from acclaimed commercial and music-video director Geremy Jasper.
Set in gritty strip-mall suburbia, PATTI CAKE$ chronicles an underdog’s quest for fame and glory with humor, raw energy and some unforgettable beats.
"a rousing and triumphant tale of freedom, creative expression, self-discovery, finding your voice -- and actually being heard. Imagine that."
"It's a real crowd-pleaser, and I hope a lot of people will be inspired by its mixture of grittiness and uplift."
""Patti Cake$" winds up being a celebration of art, enterprise and self-invention that's as tough as it is touching. At the risk of mixing metaphors, not to mention musical genres, it rocks."
