London, 1962. Two teenage girls—Ginger and Rosa (Elle Fanning and 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, and the threat of nuclear holocaust escalates, the lifelong friendship of the two girls is shattered—by the clash of desire and the determination to survive. Writer/director Sally Potter's (Orlando) drama Ginger & Rosa is "an uncommonly sensitive early-'60s coming-of-age story anchored by Fanning's subtle and heartbreaking performance." — A.O. Scott, The New York Times Official Web Site
