LOS ANGELES — Adult star Joanna Angel is appearing in the mainstream film “Scrapper,” premiering at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) May 21-22.

Angel plays Naomi in the movie, a struggling single mom and caretaker to the central character Hollis’s ailing mother. "We wanted the role of Naomi to be something other than the cliché that you see in almost every movie and TV show,” director Brady Hall said.

He added that Angel settled into her character with surprising ease. “She perfectly captured the attitude of Naomi; a single mother constantly frustrated by Hollis' inability to get home on time, and brought a lot of fun to the set. I wouldn't be surprised if she gets more offers to work with all her clothes on."

The drama stars Michael Beach (“Sons of Anarchy”) as Hollis Wallace, the titular “scrapper” who supports himself and his ailing mother by scavenging and selling cast-off copper, aluminum and other valuable metals; his unremarkable life is suddenly jolted by a remarkable chain of events that dramatically shakes him wide-awake and changes his life forever.

"Being in this movie was truly an honor,” Angel said. “I loved working alongside Michael Beach who taught me so much. I can't wait to see the film. A lot of love, passion and hard work went into the film by everyone in the cast."

Angel, her co-stars and Hall will be on hand for a Q&A session for the film.

The film screens at the SIFF Uptown Theater at 6 p.m. on May 21-22.

Premiere tickets are now available here.

After party information, which will be held at The Crocodile in Seattle, can be found here.
