Watch: Trailer For Festival Hit 'Ginger & Rosa' With Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks & Annette Bening

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."

Now the rest of us can see what he was talking about, as The Guardian have premiered a U.K. trailer for the film, which comes out there next month. And it does indeed look pretty good: Fanning looks as impressive as ever, the film looks lovely, and there's a lyrical, poetic tone to it that's right in our sweet spot. Watch below to see what we mean. The film plays TIFF from tonight, and will head to NYFF soon after. There's no U.S. distribution in place as yet, but it hits U.K. screens on October 19th, and clearly North American buyers will be taking a close eye at it this week.
