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.

"Bold and youthful… Packed full of ideas and fizzing energy." —Wendy Ide, Screen Daily

“Delightfully hilarious. One of those sweet, funny films that takes pleasure in the wonder of youth, with really tight, honest writing that is unexpected and fun." —Josh Flanders, Chicago Reader

“Immensely impressive. Anyone who saw [Harris] Dickinson as a preening model in TRIANGLE OF SADNESS will be stunned that the rough-edged, painfully uncertain Jason is played by the same person. And [Lola] Campbell, making a remarkable acting debut, is a truly rare find.” —Elizabeth Weitzman, The Wrap

“A remarkably assured first feature for director Charlotte Regan.” —Christopher Schobert, The Film Stage
