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.

Ginger and Rosa supposedly ride upon a whirling children's roundabout, and yet their hair isn't blown about by the wind. See more »
I think Rosa's a bad influence.
Meaning what, exactly?
Anoushka worries about her. She says she's disturbed.
So would you be if you'd been told you were a failure when you were 11 years old!

Elle Fanning did what Nadia Comăneci did to Gymnastics.
In 1976, Nadia Comăneci scored a perfect 10 in Gymnastics which ultimately redefined the sport and required creation of a new scale by which to measure performances. So to does Elle Fanning in Ginger & Rosa. Critics and audiences are so wowed by her performance, they're at a loss for words. In The Guardian's review used such terms as "eerily good" and "scary good." It's not a movie with a big story, it's a slice of life, teenage angst, and the trials and interactions that set our life trajectories for better or worse. It's beautifully rendered with loving attention to detail and human warmth. But don't miss this amazing performance by Elle Fanning, who is poised to redefine film acting.
