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.

Elle Fanning, Ginger & Rosa

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.

Directed by Sally Potter ("Orlando"), the film centers on the fraying friendship between two teenage girls (Fanning and Alice Englert) who encounter romance and the surging political wave of the 1960s. This scene from the film is clearly from happier times, and overall "Ginger and Rosa" is "a layered and rich little gem of a picture about life, love" and much more. New shingle A24 have picked up the rights, but are yet to give it a release date (c'mon guys). But here's hoping that an Oscar-qualifying run at least happens, and they get it in front of Academy voter eyeballs.

"Ginger & Rosa" opens in the UK this Friday, October 19th. Watch below.
