Elle Fanning & Alice Englert in Ginger & Rosa

Directed by Sally Potter. Who’s Alice Englert? She’s Jane Campion’s daughter. Nice to hear The Dave Brubeck Quartet.

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.

    Interesting to hear all these foreigners attempting British accents. They all seem to be doing very well!

    It’s interesting to look at the different trajectories the Fanning sisters’ careers have taken. Elle’s choices seem to be both quieter and more daring than Dakota’s. Even in Super 8, a very commercial film, her choices as well as the material she was given are incredibly interesting and make me want to see what she’s going to do next. Dakota, on the other hand, seems to be opting for the more blatantly commercial route with the Twilight series–in which she gets lost among an ensemble of main and secondary characters all vying for screen time–and although she has made the odd adventurous film, her star appears to have dimmed somewhat. I have to say, though, that there are a lot of interesting teen actresses coming up through the system, from Hailee Steinfeld to Chloe Moretz to Elle Fanning, and now, possibly, Alice Englert.
