Patti Cake$

Patricia “Killa P” Dombrowski drafts rhymes behind the bar at a dingy dive, trying to pay off her Nana’s medical bills and support her hard-drinking mom. Patti and her rap partner/best friend Jheri share dreams of fame, fortune, and escaping Dirty Jersey for good. Unbroken by the taunts of local goons, Patti unexpectedly gravitates to a reclusive goth-metal musician named Basterd, a newcomer who just might be able to help Patti achieve hip-hop superstardom. 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$.

Pete's Dragon

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales… until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.
