Scrapper (12)

Director Charlotte Regan. Comedy/Drama


This vibrant and inventive father-daughter comedy follows Georgie (Lola Campbell), a resourceful 12-year-old girl who secretly lives alone in her flat in a working class suburb of London following the death of her mother. She makes money stealing bikes with her best friend Ali (Alin Uzun) and keeps the social workers off her back by pretending to live with an uncle. Out of nowhere, her estranged father Jason (Harris Dickinson; Triangle of Sadness, Beach Rats) arrives and forces her to confront reality. Uninterested in this sudden new parental figure, Georgie is stubbornly resistant to his efforts. As they adjust to their new circumstances, Georgie and Jason find that they both still have a lot of growing up to do. Winner of a Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Scrapper is full of spirit, humor, and formal inventiveness that sets it apart from much of British working-class cinema. Dickinson and remarkable newcomer Campbell imbue irresistible charm into this moving and frequently hilarious story of two emotionally tangled people: a grieving kid thrust into adulthood and a father in over his head.

Starring Lola Campbell, Alin Uzun, Cary Crankson


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A touching story set in rather harsh surroundings. A film worth seeing - we were glad of subtitles.

An 'off beat' British film with brilliant performances from the main young actors. Mixed response from audience: Excellent 15, good 18, average 6, poor 1.

The majority of the audience enjoyed the film, some found it very moving. Bit of a ‘marmite’ film, those who didn’t like it, really didn’t like it!!
