Pbnj Forever! Sundance sensation Patti Cakes gets first trailer and poster

18 May 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

This year’s Sundance Film Festival once again brought the best of indie cinema to snowy Salt Lake City in Utah and around this time of year, we start to see some of the best-received films getting cinema releases in the Us and, hopefully, in the UK as well.

Indeed the London version of the film festival takes place in London in a couple of weeks and some of the treats will be shown to UK critics and audiences, but some of those who were subject of big bidding wars will be heading straight to cinemas soon. One such film is Patti Cake$, a brilliant coming-of-age tale from music director Geremy Jasper, making his feature film bow – we’ve been lucky enough to see the film here at Hug Towers and can only reiterate the acclaim it’s been getting.

The Road to Rap Stardom is Paved in First Trailer for ‘Patti Cake$’

17 May 2017 8:55 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From the streets of New Jersey, here comes Patti Cake$. Directed by Geremy Jasper, his debut follows Patricia Dumbrowski (Danielle MacDonald), a woman from Bergen County, New Jersey seeking fame through hip-hop. Patti Cake$ premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. In our review, we praised the performance from newcomer MacDonald but was underwhelmed by the film’s predictable beats: “While there’s an infectious energy to the process of musical creation and an impressive lead performance from newcomer Danielle MacDonald, the feature debut of Geremy Jasper is ultimately hindered by predictable story beats and a cynical outlook at the world it’s capturing.”

For Geremy Jasper, a music video director making his feature debut, the film was particularly personal. “It’s probably about as autobiographical a story as I’m capable of telling,” Jasper said during Sundance. “I wanted to get out for as long as I can remember… »

Dope First Trailer Drops for Sundance Rapping Sensation 'Patti Cake$'

17 May 2017 12:51 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Find out what the hype is all about! Fox Searchlight has dropped the first trailer for the film Patti Cake$, one of the most buzzed films from Sundance this year, where it premiered to standing ovations. Patti Cake$ features the big screen debut of Australian native Danielle Macdonald, playing the role of aspiring rapper Patricia Dombrowski, aka "Killa P", aka "Patti Cake$", from New Jersey. The story follows her struggles as she tries to make a name for herself in a town that doesn't care much about anyone. The cast includes Cathy Moriarty, Siddharth Dhananjay, Mamoudou Athie, and Bridget Everett. This wasn't exactly one of my favorite films of Sundance (read my review) but it has a lot of heart, it's raucus and entertaining, and it tells an encouraging story of ignoring what others say, and becoming who you really are deep down. Dig it. Here's the first official trailer »

Newcomers often have a chance to shine in the Oscar race for Best Supporting Actress (see Alicia Vikander and Lupita Nyong’o). So we may see some fresh faces emerge as contenders as the year rolls on. This early in the game, we’re keeping an eye on various heavy-hitter scene-stealers in supporting roles.

Two highly anticipated actress-director reunions to watch are Julianne Moore and Todd Haynes and Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola. Moore was nominated for Best Actress the last time she worked with Haynes (“Far From Heaven”), and went on to win for “Still Alice.” Never-nominated Dunst plays one of several southern ladies who take in a wounded soldier (Colin Farrell) in Coppola’s remake of “The Beguiled” (Focus Features).

Three Classic Films Screening at The Tivoli March 7th – 9th

2 March 2017 8:28 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

My Little Chickadee, White Heat, and Raging Bull constitute the three-film series sponsored by The Mildred Kemper Art Museum next week at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar in the University City Loop). This ties into the museum’s current exhibit “Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is?” These are Free screenings!

A kiss. A punch. A body braced for impact. The paintings of Rosalyn Drexler exude uncanny stillness, anticipation and, frequently, the dread of imminent violence. Moments of intimacy and conflict are frozen, sliced and readied for examination — excerpts from narratives whose conclusions can only be guessed. From Feb. 10 to April 17, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis will present “Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is?”, the first full-career retrospective for the multi-talented artist. Surveying six decades of work, the exhibition features major paintings and collages alongside rarely seen early sculptures. »

I wrote the role of Donna in “Obvious Child” for Jenny, and when sitting down to write the next project it was a no-brainer to write another role for her.

Review: Matinee, Joe Dante's wacky tribute to monster movies

27 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Matinee is a little-seen, charming comedy that's both a love letter to old-school movie theatres and schlocky, exploitative monster movies from the 50s. It’s set during the Cuban Missile Crisis, dealing with nuclear paranoia and the fear of the apocalypse. Messy, uneven and quite weird at times, the film is pure Joe Dante (Gremlins, Small Soldiers), who has always managed to imprint his very own style in everything he has directed. It may not always work —especially in Matinee— but it’s never boring.   John Goodman plays Lawrence Woolsey, a William Castle/Albert Hitchcock type who delights in scaring audiences with his monster movies. His latest ones have been all flops, though, so he decides to take his girlfriend/main actress, Ruth Corday (Cathy Moriarty) to Key...

Sundance Film Review: ‘Patti Cake$’

23 January 2017 6:51 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You’ve never met a rapper like Patricia Dombrowski. Her best friend calls her Killa-p, while the haters call her Dumbo, but to us, she will always be “Patti Cake$,” an overweight white hip-hop artist who announces her force-of-nature personality from her very first song, “mylifesfuckinawesome.” While Patti’s one-of-a-kind, it’s easy to recognize the type: a cross between Dawn Weiner and Precious — both Sundance discoveries as well. Every few years, an indie character comes along who so perfectly captures what it’s like to be mocked and marginalized, even as she refuses to let the bullies and abusers have the last word. That’s the kind of person Patti Cake$ is, and that’s why she stands to become one of the year’s most endearing discoveries, via a film that launches an equally compelling new directing talent.

No doubt bound to become a household-name, Patti is the »

‘Patti Cake$’ Review: Here’s the Best Hip-Hop Movie Since ‘Hustle & Flow’ – Sundance 2017

23 January 2017 3:35 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“This shit’s so confusing,” raps North Jersey native Patti (Danielle Macdonald) early in “Patti Cake$,” adding, “Want my life like a movie.” Mission accomplished: The rousing debut of writer-director Geremy Jasper channels his music video experience into a winning musical ride that hits some familiar beats while using them in service of a satisfying tale of big dreams and funky talent.

Aussie star Macdonald has a few movie credits to her name (including “The East” and Amy Berg’s “Every Secret Thing”), but she emerges as a genuine breakout in the transformative role of a hard-edged Jersey kid with an uncanny talent for turning her ambitions into energetic freestyle rap. When she isn’t honing her skills, she’s grappling with her alcoholic mother (the great New York underground theater performer Bridget Everett), herself an expert songstress whose dreams faded long ago, and grimacing her way through a dead-end catering gig. »
