2023, Charlotte Regan
84 minutes, English with Russian subtitles
Starring: Harris Dickinson, Lola Campbell, Alin Uzun
Georgie is just 12 years old, but after the death of her mother she lives on her own, smartly misleading social services, making a living by stealing and reselling bicycles and constantly fantasising. One day, reality intrudes into her world in the form of her long-gone father, played by Harris Dickinson, of Triangle of Sadness fame. The eternal party boy, played by the latter, is not far ahead of his daughter in maturity, so both of them will have to grow up in one summer. Scrapper is reminiscent of the best coming of age American films of the 1970s and 1980s; no wonder the film took the top prize at the Sundance International Film Festival.

“Scrapper” is tender without falling into sappiness.
