'Ginger & Rosa' Review

Writer-director Sally Potter sets her coming-of-age drama Ginger & Rosa at the eve of the Cuban Missile Crisis. For her young hero Ginger (a very good Elle Fanning), the possible end of the world is somehow more tolerable than the romantic anguish she's witnessing in her own backyard. It's a modest film, but it sticks with you. And Robbie Ryan's cinematography really is out of this world. My review is up at Paste.
