Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: If you see it, there may be stretches where you'll want to give up and say, "Enough already." Yet something in Danielle Macdonald's performance keeps us in our seats ...
Fresh: "Patti Cake$" charts a path of rise and fall, breakthrough and disappointment, montage and romance that would be woefully predictable if we weren't having so much fun tagging along.
Fresh: A rough-edged charmer that puts its own stamp on the underdog story.
Rotten: Yes, it features a stand-out, possibly even award-worthy, central turn from the newcomer Danielle Macdonald, but the film's most notable feature is its descent from gritty set-up into cringeworthy cliche.
Think you can get the music video from the movie now !
very well written
Coming from a director of music videos, I was very suprised by the depth of the story and characters. Normally, these kind of directors end up piling on a bunch of atmosphere and style, but no substance. In Patti Cake$, the viewer can focus on a lot of little details in the movie and see that they connect in signficiant ways. Good work here by the writer, director, cast, and crew. Kudos. I hope to see all of these people grow in their careers.
This is one of those movies that deserves to be seen! A great story told in a very unique way. Some of the best performances of the year and some of the best music. Enjoyed it in the theatre will enjoy over and over at home!
