Don’t waste your pity on Patricia - despite being overweight, poor, having an alcoholic mother who has almost zero interest in anything but the bottle, Patricia Dombrowski has her sights set on the New York City skyline that’s barely visible above the convenience store in her run-down New Jersey town. Patti wants to rap, that’s all, and spends every waking minute and all the dimes she can scrounge up trying to make the dream a reality.

"Even better, Patti Cake$, as she’s known on stage, is one hell of a great rapper, who manages to hook up with a punk rocker, and with her best pal Hareesh, forming PBNJ, who are going to take the world by storm. Drawing upon the women and the music scene that informed his youth, director Geremy Jasper has crafted an “unforgettable indie underdog.” - Variety

“A lot of stuff in the film was just stuff that happened to me growing up,” director Geremy Jasper told Variety at Sundance this year. “My experience was trying to make music in New Jersey, feeling stuck in New Jersey… feeling like you can’t get out.” Shot in familiar neighborhoods, _Patti Cake$_ is his first film.
