Exclusive: An evocative and beautifully shot portrait of post-war Britain, as seen through the eyes of an impressionable young teenager (Elle Fanning in a terrific, career-making performance), Sally Potter’s “Ginger & Rosa,” which just screened at the New York Film Festival and debuted at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this year, will receive a February 1, 2013 limited release from A24 Films The Playlist has learned.

Utilizing a rollout preferred by major studios who need to keep the buzz going for the blockbuster tentpoles, the folks behind Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa" have dropped another new clip from the film, just one day after the first one arrived. And it's another glimpse at a movie that has earned some devoted flag waving by certain folks around The Playlist offices.

Given that upstart indie distributors usually don't have a chance against major studios or more established competitors when it comes to campaigning for its stars, if we were running things, Elle Fanning would be getting a nomination for "Ginger & Rosa." It's a film we loved at Telluride -- easily one of the highlights -- and we called Fanning's performance "transformative." And now that it's gearing up to open overseas, and the first clip from the movie has arrived.

Is director Sally Potter finally having her moment? While "Orlando" put her on the arthouse map in 1992, the ensuing years haven't been easy -- Cate Blanchett, Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci and Focus Features could not help "The Man Who Cried" earn more than $1.7 million globally in 2000, and 2004's "Yes" was killed by a scathing review in Variety even though audiences at the festival adored it. That has still made Potter gunshy about festivals, Telluride in particular, where "Yes" was brutalized.

There are few young actresses right now who are on quite the same trajectory as Elle Fanning. With directors like Cameron Crowe, J.J. Abrams, Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola, David Fincher, Tony Scott and Alejandro González Iñárritu already on her impressive CV, we can only imagine an Academy Award nomination isn't too far away. Her work just seems to be getting better and better, and her latest turn in Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa" may be her best yet.

Among some higher profile competition, one of our editor-in-chief's favorite films from his time in Telluride last weekend turned out to be "Ginger & Rosa," a coming-of-age tale from director Sally Potter ("Orlando"). Probably the most accessible film to date from a filmmaker whose last picture was shot on a cellphone (2009's "Rage"), it's a Bildungsroman set in 1960s Britain with Elle Fanning and newcomer Alice Englert (the daughter of Jane Campion) as two best friends discovering protest, sex and betrayal together. With Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Timothy Spall, Jodhi May and Annette Bening among the top-notch supporting cast, it was the best little surprise of the festival, a film that's "lovely and devastating, challenging yet worthwhile."

Telluride Review: Intimate & Devastating ‘Ginger & Rosa’ Features A Transformative Elle Fanning Performance

Lovely and devastating, challenging yet worthwhile, Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa" may be the English filmmaker's best since "Orlando," and perhaps her most accessible to date. The intimate and sensual picture also features yet another terrific performance by 14-year-old Elle Fanning, who is quickly becoming the most compelling teenage actor working in movies today. But this time, as the lead, Fanning is transformative, heartbreakingly conveying the inner-life of an adolescent with an almost eerie and nuanced command of her craft.

Maybe we should call it Annette Bening day. The actress features in two new photos from two films arriving on the film festival circuit. First up is "Imogene," which is a starring vehicle for Kristen Wiig, developed by the 'SNL' comedienne before she took off in "Bridesmaids." Directed by Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman ("American Splendor"), the picture centers on a washed-up playwright (Wiig) who, after faking her own suicide as a ploy to get her ex-boyfriend's attention, winds up remanded to the custody of her wackily dysfunctional family. The picture also co-stars Bening, as you can see by the photo, Matt Dillon and "Glee" star Darren Criss.

Last year was like a big coming out party for Elle Fanning. The actress gave impressive performances in films as disparate as J.J. Abrams’s “Super 8,” Cameron Crowe's "We Bought A Zoo" and Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt," with all of these following her breakout turn in Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere” the year before. So it’s no wonder that her profile is continuing to rise, and Deadline reports that Fanning will star in the young adult novel adaptation “Olive’s Ocean.”

One thing the TIFF announcement is always good for is reminding you of a few films that have been flying somewhat under the radar, and weren't necessarily expected to be seen before the end of the year. And the flurry of new images for Toronto-bound pictures has seen the first image from three such pictures, as well as one extra from another film that's similarly quiet-ish at present.
