In London, 1962, two teenage girls, Ginger and Rosa (Elle Fanning and Alice Englert), are inseparable. They skip school, 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. Sally Potter (Rage, Yes) directs the film which also stars Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Timothy Spall, Jodhi May and Annette Bening.
The film hits the UK in October, but has no US release date.
