Okay so recently I watched the film “Ginger and Rosa” which is a really beautiful and cinematically lovely film starring Elle Fanning and Alice Englert. It’s a very thoughtful and yet sad film. I’ll just insert the movie equivalent of a blurb here so that you can read all about it.
A look at the lives of two teenage girls – inseparable friends Ginger and Rosa — growing up in 1960s London as the Cuban Missile Crisis looms, and the pivotal event that comes to redefine their relationship.
The main character was really Ginger, thankfully as Rosa was a rather unsympathetic, unlikable character, and it follows her navigating the rocky boundaries of her parents relationship and attending protests, learning to kiss and talking politics with her god parents. The pace is slow but the film isn’t boring and I thought the ending, although some have complained at it, was perfect
But the best part of it, in my opinion, was Elle Fanning who adopted a pretty convincing English accent, especially considering that it was her first time trying to use any kind of accent. her acting was excellent and she painted a very full and “3D” portrait of Ginger.
And so I was watching some interviews of the actors on You Tube and I discovered something…
Elle Fanning is so lovely!
She’s genuine and smiley and bubbly and so humble and modest. She’s just an incredibly talented and beautiful but normal girl and she seems so shocked and delighted at the fact that she’s become so successful. She’s just… great. I’ve spent too much time looking up interviews with her and the more I’ve heard her speak, the more I’ve admired her. She’s just so nice!
Plus she was a disnery princess so…
Elle Fanning = New Idol!
Oh! And here is Alice Englert, (i.e. Rosa) singing Necessary pains. She is rather good and ery beautfiul, sophisticated and refined and I sort of hate and love her at the same time? C’est possible? C’est bizarre? Ah! Je ne sais pas!
Haha, god I’m pretentious!
