I don't understand, why this movie is rated that bad so far. The topic might not interest everybody (1960, London, two adolescent girls, Cuba-crisis), but this movie is played so magically intensively and sensitive, I really enjoyed watching the movie the whole time.
The story is not obvious from the beginning and it is not a gay-movie, as you might think from watching the trailer. It is more about the cold war in bigger terms and problems of growing girls in family terms.
Elle Fanning is probably the best young actress of the last years! (All other actors play very convincing as well).
The directing of Sally Potter is fantastic as always. I hope the movie will be recognized as it is:
A precious gem!
