Scrapper

A precocious girl and her child-like father reconnect, in this funny and touching debut feature from Charlotte Regan.

In Charlotte Regan’s debut feature, Scrapper, newcomer Lola Campbell and Harris Dickinson (Triangle of Sadness, The King’s Man) unfold the hilarious story of an overly independent daughter and goofy unreliable father who struggle with connection.

Set in London, the 12-year-old protagonist, Georgie (Lola Campbell), makes a living off a lucrative bike theft business to pay the rent while living on her own. When Georgie’s absentee father (Harris Dickinson) suddenly reappears due to the untimely death of her mother, she must learn to confront reality and open up again. Regan crafts a creatively charged coming-of-age story that’s both side-splittingly funny and truthfully tragic.

This quick-witted comedy will strike your heart only to rebuild it again.

Content advisory: mature themes.
