This joyous, inventive Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner follows a 12-year-old girl who lives happily alone until her estranged father (Harris Dickinson, Triangle of Sadness, SFF 2022) turns up.
Winner of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize (World Cinema Dramatic), Charlotte Regan’s joyous, inventive debut follows Georgie (Lola Campbell), a 12-year-old girl who lives happily alone in London until her estranged father (Harris Dickinson, Triangle of Sadness, SFF 2022) turns up. When her mother dies, resourceful Georgie manages to convince social workers and the surrounding community alike that she is in the care of her uncle ‘Winston Churchill’. Within her home, Georgie has created a magical lair, and to get by she steals bicycles with her friend Ali (Alin Uzun). Her recent bereavement aside, all seems to be going quite well for Georgie. But then her long absent father Jason (Dickinson) arrives, unannounced. Georgie resists this unwanted, belated paternal attention, and Jason is more man-child than parent. Regan brings a fresh and vibrant approach to this British working class story – her film is filled with vibrant colours, witty dialogue and a propulsive energy. Says Regan: “I wanted it to be joyful and funny. I've seen films about working class lives where the characters get one minute of happiness in the whole film, where no-one is funny, everyone’s miserable. But that wasn’t my experience.”

Stylistically bold and youthful in approach… it’s a picture packed full of ideas and fizzing energy.

Scrapper is a smart, sensitive debut and a promising arrival for its talented director.
