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.

Raw and Powerful
26 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this trailer for the first time. It's one of those trailers that grabs you right away. One if the one's where you identify with the lead character and his struggle instantly.

The opening shot in the trailer shows you just how beautiful the film will look. It takes you right into Hollis's (Beach) world. You then see the strange Ray(Gillen) and then a young girl taking part in bondage (giles). Then it cuts to Hollis taking Swan (Giles) in and putting a roof over her head. The trailer definitely keeps you curious and wanting more. Those are the kind if trailers I love! The movie is even better!

I was very moved when I saw this film. It reminded me to be a kind person and not be afraid to push for what I want in life. Also, to not be afraid to stand up for myself because you never know when its going to be too late.

The acting in this is spot on. The chemistry between the characters is so great. It flows so well and leaves you wanting more. You are really submerged into this world of a scrap metal collector and all that it entails and the characters that inhabit this neighborhood.

This is the type of independent film that I could watch over and over again. Being an actress, these are the types of films that I want to associate myself with. Ones with true heart, depth and the occasional comical line. Movies like this give me hope and help remind me of where I am in my life. I will watch this one many more times. Great film! Wish I could've caught it at the Austin Film Fest!
