"Ginger & Rosa" (2012 release from the UK; 90 min.) brings the story of two young women, Ginger (played by Elle Fanning) and Rosa (played by Alice Englert), growing up as 17 year olds in 1962. As the movie opens, we see the mushroom cloud of the atomic bomb which was just unleashed over Hiroshima, and indeed the nuclear threat hangs over the movie from start to finish. Ginger and Rosy are "BFFs" as it would be called these days, even though they are very different. Ginger is the romantic poet who will quote Simone de Beauvoire ("who?" asks Rosa), and when Ginger wants to protest against the nuclear bomb, Rosa retorts "we should pray". In the end, they do both, going to church and then going to an anti-nuke demonstration. Meanwhile, Ginger's parents are having their own domestic problems, Roland being the free-spirited professor who want to "break the rules, all the rules". Rosa certainly notices the troubles too as she starts to fancy Roland. At that point we are about half-way into the movie, and to tell you more of the plot would ruin your viewing experience. Will Rosa and Roland become an item? Will Ginger's mum and dad find a way to solve their marital issues? What will become of Ginger and Rosa's friendship "for life"? You'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first and foremost, British writer-director Sally Potter does an outstanding job transporting us 50 years back in time, when indeed it was a different world. In that sense, this does not feel like a movie made in this day and age, but rather a late 60s or early 70s drama. Second, the use of the nuclear threat to advance the story line works surprisingly well (it includes the Cuban missile crisis, as experienced from afar in the UK).

I just saw this movie in a very sparsely attended matinee. If they could have booked it at our art-house theater, I believe the seats would have been filled. This film is totally beautiful and enthralling. The story is a slice of life, coming of age, period drama, set in the early 60, England. The DVD cover shows the characters that we will be most concerned with. Both young actresses give a phenomenal performance!

The Brits still are doing it a way that eludes Hollywood. You don't drown on action in this movie. You focus on character development.

This remarkable, small film arrived and departed in the blink of an eye. There were only a handful of people in the audience when I saw it. I did not know who the director was and I had never seen a movie with Elle Fanning. If you like quality acting then you should definitely buy the DVD of this film. This film has the the kind of performances that we rarely see. And Elle Fanning (who was only 13) gives one of the best performances I have ever seen by any actor at any age. If you want to see an actor completely disappear into their role this is a film you will watch more than once. Be prepared. This film was advertised as a "coming of age" film about two teenage girls who are watching their friendship disintegrate; however this film takes in a lot of psychological ground and slowly builds to an emotional intensity that is searing.

I was excited to buy this movie but I wasted my money. The story doesn't tell you much about the friendship between the girls. Sitting together smoking cigarettes, talking and doing gloomy things just didn't do it for me, and that was the beginning of the movie that just went down hill from there.This wasn't even a good movie about "wrong choices". sorry to say.

It looked and sounded from reviews like just the sort of thing we often enjoy - more artistic, perhaps a bit slow. Well it is both of those, but it still isn't any good. The story is often very sad, but I found no redeeming catharsis. Also, overall I didn't think the film did a very good job of making you feel like it was really set in early 60's Britain, as it claimed to be. The historical details seemed accurate, but culturally it was unconvincing.

quite dull. irritating performances. Ginger is an indulged mindless girl. Rosa is a typical oversexed teen. Roland is a pedophile. and the ohers go along with the stupidity. awful.
