Cutting class to engage in passionate discussions about politics, gender, sex, religion and hairstyles, Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) seem to be inseparable companions, growing up in London in the 1960s. But their friendship falters when Rosa falls under the spell of Ginger’s father, Roland, a charismatic freethinker. Ginger assuages her sense of betrayal by involving herself in the antinuclear movement as the Cuban Missile Crisis seizes the world in the grip of nuclear anxiety. The obliteration of her home life and treasured camaraderie is mirrored in the threat of total annihilation. In both cases, the personal and the global, the world doesn’t end. But nothing will ever be quite the same again. “Potter strikes a perfect balance with her two central characters, making Ginger & Rosa at once emblems of Cold War youth and precisely defined individuals in their own right.” (TIFF Cameron Bailey)
