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.


"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

"Bold and youthful… packed full of ideas and fizzing energy."

- Wendy Ide, Screen

“Regan has announced herself as a feature filmmaker with style, and this energetic feel-good film is a lovely cure for the winter blues.”

- Hannah Strong, Little White Lies

“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

“Insanely charming.”

- Therese Lacson, Collider
