This builds off of the Me Too Movement. There was an investigation done on the Janitorial industry. It turns out that many of the janitors are women who work at night time and often by themselves. And believe it or not, the industry has supervisors that take advantage of these workers. Some of them don’t know their rights and some of them have fear of being deported.

It is an interesting story and a good example of investigative journalism.

The reporter road into town
Unsure of what he’d find
The town was not too big
Not too big for any mind
He saw the folks
Oh, they seem nice
Many people around would not think twice.
He was there to do his report
Because there had been word getting around
Of strange and bizarre things
Happening in this town
The word came in from anonymous sources
People who were scared
Of the kids of this land
Who often dissappeared
The Reporter left his car
And walked the town on foot
A car came driving up and screeched to a halt
The couple rolled down their window to relay the news
“You need to get out, it’s time to go.”
What do you mean why should I leave?
“This is not a normal place, it’s not safe to stay.”
Where is the danger in this town?
“We are leaving.
You should not stay here.
This is the Land of Longfellow and he will come for you.”
And after those last words, the couple rolled up their window and drove away.
The reporter walked on.

A unique and interesting girl version of “8 mile.” There are definite similarities to 8 Mile (with Eminem) but the film is still unique and stands on its own. It’s still a rap coming-of-age movie but with a girl as the main lead.
The film was entertaining all throughout. The films has some twists and turns that will keep you guessing. In some parts it is kind of formulaic but unless you are a complete movie snob then you won’t be bothered. The lead girl definitely is the standout. The supporting actors are also good.
The real joys in the film come from the rapping scenes because you are rooting for the main character so much (similar to 8 Mile).
Also, I would say the film is very strong in the first hour with a lot happening and with the scenes moving quickly.
If you like movies that have music in them and you like coming-of-age movies then you’ll definitely like Pattie Cake$.
DJ ROBO BISCUIT gives it a 7 out of 10.

“Obvious Child” and “Landline” are both interesting human films starring Jenny Slate. They both have to do with an adult woman trying to deal with real life adult problems. Obvious Child is funnier than Landline. Landline is more like a drama and Obvious Child is a romantic comedy. Both films are sincere and earnest. I recommend Obvious Child over Landline as it is more entertaining. BUT, if you like films that are about people trying to deal with their problems and you kind of like hipster-y women then Landline might be more entertaining.
Some have called Landline “Blase” whatever that means! The two films are well-directed and are interesting enough to have you watch all the way through and you also don’t really know what it going to happen!
If you are a fan of Jenny Slate and you just wish you could see her in the movies then these are two very entertaining films.
