It seems like just yesterday Elle Fanning was but a wee girl, but now she's running around London protesting nuclear war. Where does the time go? Elle is Ginger in Ginger & Rosa, half of a tight twosome growing up in London in the early '60s. Though they're intent on staying best friends forever, the tumultuous times pull them apart as Ginger grows increasingly concerned about the world's political climate and Rosa fails to show the same interest. Christina Hendricks stars as Ginger's mother, who is struggling with her daughter's resistance to hold onto her youth.
I'll be curious to see Hendricks outside of her Mad Men character, Joan, though it appears she just can't wriggle away from '60s couture. To me, this already feels like An Education meets Across the Universe (minus the Beatles tunes, of course). Ginger & Rosa doesn't yet have a release date, but you can watch the trailer when you read more.
