1962: Samoa granted independence from New Zealand, John Glenn is the first American to orbit earth, Jackie Kennedy gives a televised tour of the White House, Pope John XXIII excommunicates Fidel Castro; “Escape from Alcatraz” a film starring Clint Eastwood based upon the U.S.-British nuclear test in Nevada; historically, the most monumental, colossal event: the Cuban Missile Crisis, the catastrophic threat of total annihilation. “Ginger” and “Rosa” at seventeen, living in London are political activists, shriveling in dysfunctional homes, born on the same day in 1945. A thought- provoking “coming of age” tale written and directed by Sally Potter; more powerful than the action, which at times is plodding, are the mulling, struggling formulas being conjured in their fertile, unsowed minds...

Just saw Ginger and Rosa. If this film hadn't been under the radar, Elle Fanning would undoubtedly have been rewarded with an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, giving a performance which is now receiving universal critical acclaim. Her performance alone makes this a must see film.

Every frame of this film is a gorgeous composition. Elle Fanning is particularly stunning, in a cast brimming with talent. Sally Potter directs with great brio and precision.
