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.

Darkly comedic and enticing
26 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is quite a ride. The trailer doesn't elude much to the fact that a lot of this is darkly comedic. I was very surprised in a good way! There are too many films that have a good storyline and great characters and there is no comic relief! Don't get me wrong, its still a Drama, but it has its moments. This film had the perfect balance.

The way the ensemble worked together was amazing. The cast members really played well off of each other and lived moment to moment. Swan (Giles) is a lost young woman, in which whom we should feel really bad for, but we see the way she lives her life and it brings a lightness to it. She played it very well! Ray (Gillen) also brought his fair share of comedy to it...but in the end you look back upon him and rethink his motives...what a strange man! Hollis (Beach) really carries the film and brought so much to the story. He was so open and vulnerable to everything that was happening to him. I felt like I was working beside him.

I saw this film at the Seattle International Film Fest. It will be out on VOD in April 2014 and I am gonna buy it! So good!

Check it, yo.
