Ginger & Rosa (2012)
Sunday 10th February 2013
Artificial Eye announces the compelling and bold Ginger & Rosa for release on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 11th February 2013.
Ginger & Rosa stars Elle Fanning (We Bought a Zoo, Super 8, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Alice Englert (8, The Water Diary), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Drive), Alessandro Nivola (Jurassic Park III, Coco Before Chanel), Timothy Spall (Enchanted, Sweeney Todd) and BAFTA® winner Annette Bening (American Beauty, The Siege). Take a look into the extraordinary lives of two very different young girls and their struggles in life during the 1960's together.
Directed by Sally Potter (Orlando, The Tango Lesson) Ginger & Rosa is an evocative and beautifully shot portrait of post-war Britain, as seen through the eyes of Elle Fanning's impressionable young teenager. She plays Ginger, who finds herself increasingly estranged from her mother (Hendricks) and drawn further into the world of her pacifist and anti-nuclear activist father (Nivola). However, her friendship with the fiery Rosa (Englert) is severely tested by her unconventional lifestyle. The result is an intelligent examination of political and personal responsibility.
Ginger & Rosa was nominated for Best Film at the London Film Festival and received three BIFA nominations. This compelling story of friendship, heartbreak and love is accompanied by a commentary from Director Sally Potter and is available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital download from 11th February 2013.
