Storyline

Did you know that scrap metal is America's 4th largest export? Well, Hollis Wallace does, and he makes his quiet living trolling the back alleys of Seattle looking for cast-off copper, aluminum and other valuable metals. Hollis uses all the tricks of the metal scrapping trade to earn his living and navigate through a fascinating and rowdy world that few pay any attention to. Hollis's only friend is his ailing mother, and his only drive in life is to collect enough scrap to take care of her. But his routine and isolation are disrupted when he has a strange encounter with teenage runaway Swan in the basement of an unhinged neighbor. They end up forming a scrapping partnership that almost borders on a friendship, before the forces in their lives threaten to destroy their new bond completely. SCRAPPER is a witty drama that stars Michael Beach (Third Watch, Soul Food, Sons of Anarchy) as Hollis, a quiet man with a keen grasp on his trade and no grasp at all on his personal life.

Great Character Piece!
6 March 2014 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I got an advanced DVD copy of this movie from a friend who had it because apparently he knows one of the actors whose name I can't remember but who played some super tiny role in the movie, and honestly, I only ended up watching it because my Netflix account was down for the count the other night, but I was surprised by how good it was. Not really what I expected, but it was well worth it.

This is just a really engaging movie with great performances, especially from Aiden Gillen. Very emotional story, you get caught up in the main character's tiny world and all of the pressure that falls on him along the way. Definitely recommended!
