Patti Cake$

Rated R 108 minutes 2017

She’s a bartender/waitress from Northern New Jersey with dreams of becoming a hip-hop superstar. He’s an Indian immigrant pharmacist also heavily into rap. Together, Patti (Australian actress Danielle Macdonald) and Jheri (Siddharth Dhananjay) take us on a tour of their world – cheap clubs, shacks in the woods, etc. – in a fairy-tale-like showbiz drama set to writer-director-composer Geremy Jasper’s rhymes and rhythms. So what if it’s a bit clichéd? In fact, so what if it’s a pile of hackneyed situations from an ancient formula, with comically overdrawn performances? Macdonald makes us believe by sheer force of lung power. Apt support by actors Mamoudou Athie, Bridget Everett, and Cathy Moriarty (108 min., 2017, rated R)
