"Critic's Pick! “Scrapper” is tender without falling into whip-smart as the 12-year-old girl at its center." - Claire Shaffer, The New York Times

"A masterclass in playful, imaginative storytelling"

This vibrant and inventive father-daughter comedy follows Georgie (Lola Campbell), a resourceful 12-year-old who secretly lives alone in her flat in a working class suburb of London following the death of her beloved mum. 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. But when her estranged father Jason (Harris Dickinson; Triangle of Sadness, Beach Rats) turns up out of the blue, she’s forced to confront reality. Uninterested in this sudden new parental figure, Georgie is stubbornly resistant to Jason's efforts and they quickly find that they both still have a lot of growing up to do. 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. Winner of a Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Scrapper is a joyful comedy about family and fresh starts that believes life’s not so much about chasing rainbows as snatching fistfuls in both hands.
