Ginger and Rosa

Following in the footsteps of her older sister Dakota Fanning, Super 8 star Elle Fanning is quickly growing up into quite the talented teenage actress. Her new film Ginger and Rosa teams her up with newcomer Alice Englert and is currently making the rounds at festivals like Telluride and the Toronto International Film Festival this month. The film follows two girls living in 1960s London, whose intense friendship is tested by the dramatic events they are living through. There's also a great supporting cast that includes Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Annette Bening and more. Looks like it could be a nice indie gem.

Here's the first trailer for Sally Potter's Ginger and Rosa from The Guardian (via The Playlist):

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. 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. Sally Potter (Rage, Yes) directs the film which also stars Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Timothy Spall, Jodhi May and Annette Bening. The film hits the UK in October, but has no US release date.

      • beevis
        seemed like just another cookie-cutter "teen-angst" movie to me. the trailer left me wondering why i'd use up my time watching it.
  • I was hoping for some Hendricks cleavage. Major letdown.
