When we were born, for some it was the end. Now there may not be a tomorrow.
— Ginger, Ginger & Rosa





Written and directed by Sally Potter, and starring Elle Fanning, Alice Englert, Alessandro Nivola and Timothy Spall, Ginger and Rosa premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and explores the lives of two teenage girls - inseparable friends Ginger and Rosa -- growing up in 1960s London as the Cuban Missile Crisis looms, and the pivotal event that comes to redefine their relationship.

In Potter’s assured, caring hands, “the personal is political” assumes newfound breadth, depth and surprising emotional poignancy.
