Trail & District Arts Council’s MONDAY CINEMA presents Scrapper at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue, Trail on Monday, March 4th @ 4 pm.
Doors open at 3:30 pm.
A vibrant and inventive father-daughter comedy that follows Georgie, a 12-year-old girl who secretly lives on her own in a working-class suburb of London. She’s happy to be alone, pretending to live with an uncle, stealing to make money and building a strange tower into the sky from her mum’s bedroom.
When her estranged father, Jason, turns up out of blue, she’s forced to confront what’s really going on, as 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 and humor as Dickinson, and remarkable newcomer Campbell, add irresistible charm into a moving and frequently hilarious story of a grieving kid and a father in over his head.
“Like a cold treat on a hot day, Scrapper delivers two scoops of a sweet father-daughter dramedy best consumed when in need of a hug.” – Rotten Tomatoes
