Growing up in the London of the 60’s isn’t easy for Ginger and Rosa. While their parents are trying to get themselves back together after previous wars, women’s status is seriously questioned. In fact, after all this time being housewives they now shall get a job or die of boredom while everybody else is fighting against something. Ginger is concerned about nuclear war and the missiles that are dangerously pointed at Cuba. On the other hand, Rosa can only think about lasting love but it isn’t that simple when you have serious daddy issues (he left her when she was a kid). There is a real sensibility and poetry in Sally Potter’s movie that carried us away and this is partly because of a set of talented actors and most of all, splendid Elle Fanning.
