Editorial Reviews

London, 1962: Two teenage girls, Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert), are inseparable. They play truant together, discuss religion, politics and hairstyles, and dream of lives bigger than their mothers' frustrated domesticity. But as the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, the lifelong friendship of the two girls is threatened.

"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).

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 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!

'Ginger & Rosa' is a coming of age film, not my coming of age and not yours, but Gingers and Rosas'. Teenagers in The late 60's in London, during the 'Ban The Bomb' movement, they become involved because it is in their genes.

Thisis a quirky film, trite at times but very true. Ginger played byElle Fanning is an exquisite young woman of 17. She lives with her parents, Mother, played by Christina Hendricks ( a strange choice ) and her father, Roland. Roland is an teacher and artistic sorts and a protestor by choice. He is also unfaithful, multiple times it appears, as the parents separate many times. Rosa, played by Alice Englert, is the daughter of Anouska's close friend, her father left at an early age. Ginger and Risa grew up together, and they are best friends. Haddad their first smoke roger, hitchhike to the protests together. They are always together until something pulls them apart.

Ginger's parents are part of a left wing group,which includes a gay couple played by Timothy Spall and Olver Platt. Another friend, in a very bitartrate, Annette Bening, plays a rigorous leftist. A strange pairing, and why these
actors chose these bit parts in this simple film is a question. The protests pay a major part in the film, but it is really the relationships of these young girls and their coming out parties, so to speak. Rsa becomes more interested in sex, and Ginger moves on with her protests. The relationship of the girls suffers as does Ginger's parents. Not good role models., as they come to realize.

I was anxious to see what would occur. What I I'd discover is that Elle Fanning is a beautiful young woman at the age of 13, and a terrific actress. The rest of the cast where fine, but a motley crew. Interesting film.

At least this time, A.O. Scott nailed it with his review of this film on the New York Times. The movie is not perfect, but Elle Fanning is so good in this movie that she sustains it through the end. She is in almost every frame of the movie and she is truly amazing, interpreting a young teenager in early 1960s London. Physically, she reminds me of a young Drew Barrymore, particularly when she smiles. The recreation of that particular time is excellent, even if the movie probably was done with a small budget. There is also a pleasure to see some wonderful actors, as Annette Bening, Timothy Spall and Oliver Platt as support players. Alessandro Nivola is also good in the ugly role of an extremely selfish, clueless, and self-centered father. The least unconvincing part of the movie is the final melodramatic family confrontation, which should feel stronger than it really is.
