Ginger & Rosa
: I saw Sally Potter's new movie at the New York Film Festival back in the fall when it was still scheduled for an end-of-year release, and I never felt especially compelled to write about it. It isn't a terrible movie; it sets up an interesting relationship between Ginger (Elle Fanning) and her best friend Rosa (Alice Englert), which begins to fray due to Ginger's developing activism and an extremely inappropriate sexual relationship involving Rosa. But, as plenty of people said last year, for a movie called Ginger & Rosa
, it feels weirdly off-balance, with several minor adult roles crowding Englert off the screen as the movie progresses. She and Fanning are both strong, but the talky, moody picture they're in begins to feel a tad oppressive.
