Sally Potter’s anticipated Ginger & Rosa arrives in the UK today, having debuted to strong early reviews at TIFF last month, followed by its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival which is currently underway in the capital.
Elle Fanning and Alice Englert star as the two young leads in this 1960s-set drama, and with the film now entering theatres, two new clips have surfaced following the first clip we saw yesterday.
“As the Cold War meets the sexual revolution in 1960s London, the lifelong friendship of two teenage girls (Elle Fanning, Alice Englert) is shattered by ideological differences and personal betrayals.”
Starring alongside the young leading duo will be an excellent supporting cast, headed up by Christina Hendricks, Alessandro Nivola, Annette Bening, Timothy Spall, and Oliver Platt, with Potter directing from her own script.
A24 acquired the US distribution rights last weekend, and though no release date has been set yet, their intentions are to give the film an Oscar-qualifying run before the year’s end, followed by a wide release in early 2013.
Ginger & Rosa is released in the UK today, 19th October, and you can click here to find your nearest cinema. No word yet on exactly when it will arrive in the US, but LA readers can hopefully look forward to it before the year’s end. The film promises to be one of the best British films of the year, and is an absolute must-see.
