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.
Fanning displays a dazzling naturalness on camera, an ability to move persuasively between any number of emotions, from hesitant to sassy to distraught to anything else you can name.Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, 03.14.2013
Sally Potter's twin interests - in grand world movements and in the grand internal movements in people lives - are effectively brought to bear in "Ginger & Rosa," her best film of the decade.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 03.21.2013
Elle's acting feels artless and naive, and all the more powerful for it. Fanning easily convinces you of Ginger's emotional reality - that every moment is the only moment.Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 03.21.2013
