    It's quietly brutal stuff, beautifully acted by Fanning, Englert, Christina Hendricks and a word-twisting Alessandro Nivola.

    A viscerally charged movie that foregrounds surface tensions and gripping performances, Ginger and Rosa is the filmmaker's most accessible and technically surefooted work to date.

    A touching drama from British art-house filmmaker Sally Potter, who broke through to wider audiences with 1992's "Orlando" and has now made her most mainstream movie yet.

    Beautiful, yet dark and moving, unsparing, but told with a sympathetic eye, Ginger & Rosa is sometimes relentless in its examination of emotional pain.

    This film could have easily been overly sentimental or melodramatic, but it is neither. It is unflinching in its ability to show the realness of hurt which is experienced by each character in the film, to one degree or another. The cast list is stuffed with great actors, but Elle Fanning (Super 8, Somewhere) stands out and continues to show herself to be very talented (more so than her older sister even). Full Review »

    Romanticizing youth a bit much.
    Peerless portrayal of adolescent.
    Enchanting cinematography matched by the most beautiful work by Elle
    Fanning (Oh!.. I am so a fan) and Alice Englert.
    and in one word, lets just say it "beguiling"

    It's a simple movie, that really passed truth, Ginger is a powerful character, who makes more life every minute, thanks to the great performance of Elle. Full Review »
