Pretty much like her sister Dakota, Elle Fanning is growing up to be an amazing actress. Her latest film, the artsy-looking “Ginger and Rosa” promises yet another pitch performance from this young thespian.
Boasting a solid cast (Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Annette Bening, Alice Englert), “Ginger and Rosa” comes from writer and director Sally Potter, whose films tend to verge on art house territory.
The trailer for this one doesn’t disappoint, promising brilliant cinematography but, at the same time, a touching, easy to relate story.
“In London, 1962, two teenage girls, Ginger and Rosa (Elle Fanning and Alice Englert), are inseparable. They skip school, discuss religion, politics and hairstyles, and dream of lives bigger than their mothers’ frustrated domesticity,” a synopsis of the film reads.
“But, as the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, and the threat of nuclear holocaust escalates, the lifelong friendship of the two girls is shattered – by the clash of desire and the determination to survive,” states the same.
“Ginger and Rosa” will be out in the UK in October but is yet to find a distributor for the US.
