GINGER & ROSA

Posted on August 18, 2012 by


Sally Potter’s new film, GINGER & ROSA, will have its world premiere in Toronto on Friday 7, September.

GINGER & ROSA is also invited to the New York Film Festival in October.

Here’s the piece on the film from the NYFF programme

In 1962 London, two teenage girls, best friends since they were toddlers, are driven apart by a scandalous betrayal. Making her NYFF debut, writer-director Sally Potter has crafted an intimate, riveting coming-of-age story – one made all the more powerful by a revelatory performance by Elle Fanning as the bright, anxious Ginger, increasingly affected by both the misery of her parents (deftly played by Alessandro Nivola and Christina Hendricks) and the era’s all-too-real fears of nuclear destruction. As her private dramas unfold against the backdrop of broader historical terrors, Ginger proves to be one of cinema’s most fascinating and formidable young heroines. Talented newcomer Alice Englert, the daughter of filmmaker Jane Campion, makes her impressive feature film debut as the troubled Rosa.
