I’m so happy to invite all of you to this: a free preview screening
at 92nd St. Y of Ginger & Rosa, one of my favorite films this year, followed
by a conversation with the amazing director Sally Potter. (March 12th at 8:15 at 92Y.)
The film, a sell-out hit at this year’s New York Film
Festival, stars Elle Fanning as Ginger and Alice Englert as Rosa, best friends in 60’s
ban-the-bomb London. It is one of Potter’s most emotionally moving and accessible
works, a story that combines friendship, politics, love, and coming-of-age,
with an amazing cast. Alessandro Nivola plays Ginger’s romantic, save-the-world
but emotionally treacherous father, Christina Hendricks (Joan from Mad Men) is her
thwarted-artist mother, and Oliver Platt, Annette Bening and Timothy Spall are
Potter, of course, is best known for her sumptuous, playful
adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, the film that made Tilda Swinton a
star. I know from the Film Festival that Potter has fascinating things to say
about Ginger & Rosa, her personal connection to it, and her versatile, extremely independent career.
