Fighting an unlikely quest for glory in her downtrodden hometown in Jersey where her life is falling apart, Patti tries to reach the big time in the hip hop scene with original and affecting music. Cheered on by her grandmother (Cathy Moriarty) and only friends, Jheri (Siddharth Dhananjay) and Basterd (Mamoudou Athie), Patti also shoulders her mother’s (Bridget Everett) heartaches and misfortunes.
Patti Cake$ opens 8/18/2017, but we have a chance for you to see it early and for free. Immediately following the screening, there will be a Q&A with director Geremy Jasper and star Danielle MacDonald. Details below.
