DIFF365 Presents the Big Hearted Crowd Pleaser Patti Cake$

The Sundance smash hit is sizzling with energy and good vibes and labelled as one of the best movies of the year.

Dubai, 04 September 2017: DIFF365@VOX powered by du presents audiences with Geremy Jasper’s hugely acclaimed feature film Patti Cake$. The rag-to-riches story has been heralded by critics as “an instant classic!” and listed as “one of the best films of the year.”

The crowd pleasing hit, which earned standing ovations when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, promises to take UAE audiences by storm when it lights up DIFF365 screens at VOX Cinemas (cinema 9), Mall of the Emirates from 7th September until 20th September 2017.

In a coming-of-age story straight out of Jersey, an unlikely rapper Patricia “Killa P” Dombrowski finds her voice as a one-of-a-kind hip-hop legend in the making in Patti Cake$, from celebrated commercial and music video director Geremy Jasper. Set in gritty strip-mall suburbia, Patti Cake$ chronicles an underdog’s quest for fame and glory with humour, raw energy and some unforgettable beats.

“Killa P’ is played by Australian newcomer Danielle Macdonald who is irresistible, joyous and inspiring in the lead role, delivering an outstanding performance that has led to her being cast opposite Jennifer Anniston in the upcoming film Dumplin’.

First-time feature director Geremy Jasper unleashes a film as full of infectious energy, enthusiasm and music as its protagonist, daring us not to fall in love with a force of nature like Patti Cake$.

Patti Cake$ will screen to DIFF 365@VOX at the dedicated theatre (cinema 9) at VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates in Dubai from 7th - 20th September, 2017. Tickets are available online at the VOX website and at the box office at VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates.

The Festival returns this year from 6 – 13 December 2017. Students, media and industry professional planning to attend the DIFF this year are urged to register early, DIFF’s early bird packages are available until 1st October, 2017.
