Ginger & Rosa
Dir. Sally Potter
UK 2012 | Colour | 90mins | Cert 12
Cast: Elle Fanning, Alice Englert, Christina Hendricks
Sally Potter's latest film is an evocative and beautifully shot portrait of post-war Britain, as seen through the eyes of Elle Fanning's impressionable young teenager. She plays Ginger, who finds herself increasingly estranged from her mother (Christina Hendricks) and drawn further into the world of her pacifist and anti-nuclear activist father (Alessandro Nivola). However, her friendship with the fiery Rosa (Alice Englert) is severely tested by her unconventional lifestyle and their relationship threatens to explode like the bomb that threatens them all. The result is a passionate, moving and intelligent examination of political and personal responsibility, portrayed in exquisite detail by some of the greatest acting and directing talents.
