As we’ve outlined in our Most Anticipated Films Of 2013 Part 1 & Part 2, there are a lot of potentially great films on the horizon across the next twelve months. However, there are also a handful of movies that we’ve already seen that will be heading to screens in the new year, that we already know will be worth tracking down. And one to mark on your calendar is “Ginger & Rosa.”
The latest effort from “Orlando” and “The Tango Lesson” director Sally Potter, the film is potent blend of politics, coming-of-age, burgeoning sexuality and more, all set against the backdrop of the changing tides of the 1960s. And leading the cast is an outstanding Elle Fanning, who gives a “tranformative” and “heartbreaking” turn opposite Alice Englert (daughter of Jane Campion and also solid), in the film that tracks two teenage girls, and their slowly evolving and fraying relationship.
This brand new, exclusive U.S. trailer beautifully conveys the emotional landscape of the movie, and the expressive lensing and performances that bring it to life. Gorgeously shot by cinematographer Robbie Ryan (“Fish Tank,” “Wuthering Heights”), “Ginger & Rosa” also features an excellent supporting cast that includes Christina Hendricks, Alessandro Nivola, Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Timothy Spall.
Though originally slated for a February 1st bow, distributors A24 have slightly tweaked their plans, and will now open the film in limited release on March 15th. Watch below.
