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 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.
Part crime caper, part cheeky comedy, this Brit flick about a young bicycle thief who reunites with the dad she’s never met builds to a surprising emotional wallop. – Christopher Lloyd, The Film Yap
Watching these two mutually suspicious strangers stumble toward forming a family makes Scrapper an invigorating treat… – Kyle Smith, Wall Street Journal
