Beautiful cinematography along with Sally Potter's creative story telling and editing style makes for a nice film. Well acted. Definitely not as memorable as "Orlando" but worth a watch.

Tender yet also intense coming-of-age drama April 19 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on
"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). Third, the acting performances are ace throughout, although special kudos to Elli Fanning, featuring flaming red hair, who exudes a confidence and screen presence that belies her age (she is still only 15). Last but not least, kudos also for the excellent soundtrack, featuring music from those days. I literally hadn't heard The Shadows' "Apache" in ages (maybe even decades). There is also a number of jazz tracks from the likes of Thelonious Monk and Dave Brubeck.

The screening I saw this at the local art-house theatre here in Cincinnati was very well attended, I am happy to say, which gives me hope that there is an strong appetite and demand for this movie. Bottom line: this is a little gem of a movie, a tender yet at times intense coming-of-age saga and family drama. This is miles away from your standard Hollywood fare, but if you are in the mood for something small yet personal, you cannot go wrong with this. "Ginger & Rosa" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

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.

Beautiful film March 31 2013
By Rock Report - Published on
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!

Remarkable performance by Elle Fanning energizes this film April 28 2013
By Austin Gallaher - Published on
Verified Purchase
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.

gloomy Sept. 24 2013
By Malia - Published on
Format: DVD
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.
