About Ginger And Rosa
A '60s set coming-of-age drama. Thirteen-year-old Londoner Ginger (Elle Fanning) is an intelligent but naïve girl who constantly worries about the threat of nuclear war. The rest of her time is devoted to her more rebellious best friend Rosa (Alice Englert). Both girls enjoy sneaking out of school to meet boys and dread the thought of growing up like their mothers. In contrast, Ginger's father Roland (Alessandro Nivola) is a pacifist poet who she greatly admires. When he leaves her artistic but practical mother (Christina Hendricks) to live in a run-down bachelor pad, it draws Rosa's attention and Ginger gets a harsh lesson in the way of the world. The advice of some unconventional adults (Timothy Spall and Annette Bening) only serves to heighten her confusion.
