Revelation Perth International Film Festival
5 July 2018 - 18 July 2018
One of the buzz films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser through and through.
Patty Cake$ a.k.a Killer P a.k.a a lot of other names – real name Patricia Dombrowski – dreams of making it as a rapper but things are stacked against her. She’s on the wrong side of the tracks. Her mother is a boozy barfly whose past career as a rock star still haunts her (and Patty) and Patty is doing everything she can to keep the debt collecting foreclosing wolves from the door.
Along with her best friend Jheri Patti encounters a bizarre hard rock/rap dark spirit Bastard on an open mic night and quickly becomes fascinated with this outsider who we find living in a shack on the outskirts of town recording his own special brand of musical weirdness.
Along with Patty’s grandmother (don’t ask!) together a strange magic develops between this group of outsiders as the film twists and turns from raw drama to laugh-out-loud comedy.
