Meanwhile the shadow of apocalyptic dread hangs over the proceedings and bears down on Ginger's somber perspective. "The whole world could be blown to pieces at any minute," she says, baffling the middle aged gay couple (Timothy Spall and Oliver Platt) friendly with her family and tasked with comforting her. And while the literal realization of her fears are unfounded, Ginger's world as she understands at the beginning of the story -- a gentle, innocuous playground -- truly does crumble by the final scenes, glimpsed in the final third of the trailer when Ginger breaks down into tears.
The trailer is also coy about Ginger's tempestuous relationship to her parents, including only a fleeting conversation between her and her radical intellectual dad Roland (Alessandro Nivola), whose cold perspective on society's constraints plays a crucial role Ginger's awakening. Meanwhile, a melancholic Christina Hendricks, as Ginger's mom, mainly casts dejected looks at her daughter; there's much more to their relationship than that.
But that's neither here nor there. The "Ginger and Rosa" trailer accurately reflects the two qualities outlined in the pull quote it uses from Indiewire's review -- it's both "viscerally charged" and contains "gripping performances" that make it a must-see. But the trailer's one certainty is that it unveils the logo for A24 as the distribution company heads into its first full year of releases with a slate that also includes Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers." Now that's diversity for you.
