Meet Danielle Macdonald, Sundance 2017's Big Breakout Star!

The big breakout star of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival is undoubtedly going to be newcomer Danielle Macdonald after the amazing reception she got for her new movie Patti Cake$!

The 25-year-old Australian actress stepped out for the premiere alongside co-stars Bridget Everett, Siddharth Dhananjay, Mamoudou Athie, Cathy Moriarty, Patrick Brana, and Wass Stevens, as well as writer-director Geremy Jasper on Monday (January 23) in Park City, Utah.

The movie got a standing ovation from the audience at the premiere and Danielle received another standing ovation when she walked on stage for the Q&A! It’s very likely that the film is going to receive the Audience Award at the festival.

Danielle plays an aspiring New Jersey rapper in the movie and she opened up during the Q&A about how she knew tons of rap songs already, but didn’t know much about the rap music world or who the artists were. After spending two and a half years on the project, she has a much better appreciation for the genre of music!
