Patti Cake$ Trailer: The Sundance Hip Hop Sensation


Aside from The Big Sick, one of the other major acquisitions at Sundance this year was Patti Cake$, the story of a female rapper who chases her dream of escaping her hard knock life in New Jersey. Fox Searchlight picked up the movie for $10.5 million after a massive bidding war and now they are bringing it to theatres just in time to close out the summer. The movie marks the directorial debut of music video director Geremy Jasper, who was also nominated for a Golden Camera (Best First Feature Film) at Cannes. Could this be the next Hustle & Flow? Patti Cake$ hits select theatres on Aug. 18th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    She looks like she could be Artie Lange’s daughter

    Looks amazing, but I couldn’t understand most of the dialogue. Hoping the music overlay is just too loud in the trailer and it will be fine in the movie.
