A near-flawless film, beautifully shot and cut, excitingly performed and deeply felt.(Minneapolis Star Tribune)
GINGER & ROSA is an evocative, historical coming-of-age drama about two young girls set in Cold-War era, pre-Beatlemania London. It stars Elle Fanning, Alice Englert, Annette Benning, Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt and Timothy Spall. London, 1962, two teenage girls - GINGER & ROSA - are inseparable. They skip school together, talk about love, religion and politics and dream of lives bigger than their mothers' domesticity. But the growing threat of nuclear war casts a shadow over their lives. Ginger (Elle Fanning) is drawn to poetry and protest, while Rosa (Alice Englert) shows Ginger how to smoke cigarettes, kiss boys and pray.
Written and Directed by Sally Potter (Orlando)
