Danielle Macdonald ably plays an aspiring, gifted rapper who suffers setbacks from her struggling home life (including an unsupportive mother), her job uncertainties and her insecurity about her weight. Her quest for fame follows traditional storylines, but the affecting performances make it involving. The directorial debut by Geremy Jasper is sometimes flashy, but he manages to capture the frustration and energy of his characters’ world (the music’s not bad either). While some might compare it to “8 Mile,” this film is less gritty and more spunky in style and approach. It’s enjoyable and even a bit sweet with a sincere, spunky edge.

 

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
