Ginger and Rosa (2012) MIFF Review

Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) are teenagers who grew up together in London in the sixties under the looming fear of total nuclear annihilation. Rosa struggles with her single mother, whist Ginger is dealing with her father’s affairs and the fighting of her parents.

There is so much to love about this film – the style of the times, the way the story unfolds, the way a friendship can seem like everything. It’s a beautiful film and worth tracking down.
