Storyline

London, 1962. Two teenage girls - Ginger and Rosa -- are inseparable; they play truant together, 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.

terrificly well played film
19 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

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!
