Ginger & Rosa review

Elle Fanning turns in a striking performance in this '60s-set coming-of-ager

Spearheaded by a strikingly self-assured turn from Elle Fanning, this ’60s-set coming-of-ager follows two teenage girls whose bond starts to crumble under the emotional and political pressures of adulthood.

Director Sally Potter shrewdly weaves the domestic drama - centred on the shifting dynamics between Ginger (Fanning), her parents (Christina Hendricks and Alessandro Nivola) and one-time BFF Rosa (Alice Englert) - against the backdrop of nuclear paranoia and social change, but at times allows her dialogue to shift from smart to on-the-nose.
