Rated PG-13

Drama
Elle Fanning delivers a stellar performance as Ginger, with an excellent British accent I might add, in this film about two teenagers in Cold War England in the ’60s. Fanning runs the gamut here, showing all of the joy, anguish and fears of a girl living in an age where the world seems to be falling apart. Alice Englert is also terrific as Rosa, her more depressed best friend, while Alessandro Nivola and Christina Hendricks are also excellent as Ginger’s parents. The film goes a little off the rails in its final scenes, but it’s solid and steady for most of its running time, with Fanning showing the world that she is an actress to be reckoned with. Written and directed by Sally Potter, it’s a showcase for Fanning that should propel her into good future acting roles.
