Elle Fanning and Christina Hendricks Lead ‘Ginger & Rosa’ Trailer

Ginger and Rosa
Artifical Eye

Though Dakota Fanning arrived on the scene as one of the most talented youngsters ever to be put in front of a camera, her sister Elle Fanning has also developed into a powerhouse of a performer. She leads Sally Potter’s latest movie ‘Ginger & Rosa,’ which is about two young girls discovering themselves during the Cold war.

Director Potter had a breakthrough hit in the 1990′s with ‘Orlando,’ starring Tilda Swinton, but her work since hasn’t received as much attention. As she’s gathered Christina Hendricks, Annette Bening, Timothy Spall, and Alessandro Nivola (best known for playing Castor Troy’s brother in ‘Face/Off’), it seems like she realized the best way to get attention in the art house world is make movies that might win awards.

The film is scheduled to open in the UK October 19, but if it is award catnip, expect it in America shortly thereafter. Here’s the synopsis:

London, 1962. Two teenage girls – Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) — 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.

And here’s the trailer:
