Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 28th at 6:30p for Scrapper at the Brattle Theatre. Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
The hilarious and touching story of a little girl who has been forced to grow up too fast and her father, who seems to have not grown up at all. When 12-year-old Georgie (Campbell) is left on her own after her mother’s death, she turns to petty crime to keep her independence, stealing bikes with her friend Ali (Uzun) and enlisting a store clerk to pose on the phone as her uncle. Still grieving but putting on a brave face, Georgie is not sure how to handle it when her estranged father (Dickinson) suddenly turns up and tries to get back into her life.
