The principles of '60s radicalism clash with the murkier morality of those who practiced it in Sally Potter's sharply observed coming-of-age melodrama, "Ginger & Rosa." The filmmaker, still best-known for "Orlando" 20 years after that breakout work, presents this conflict as it seen through the eyes of a teenage girl.
Ginger (Elle Fanning), nicknamed because of the red hair she inherited from her mother (Christina Hendricks of "Mad Men"), is a hip, jazz-and-poetry loving teen daughter of a radical chic couple in 1962 London. Mom has a hint of the traditional about her. But Dad (Alessandro Nivolla) insists that she and her friends call him by his first name, Roland.
Roland's a writer and dedicated pacifist. Mom gave up a career in art to have Ginger right at the end of World War II.
It's what ended World War II that drives Ginger to the nascent nuclear disarmament movement. Of course, »
