A24 has picked up Sally Potter's lovely coming-of-age film "Ginger & Rosa," starring Elle Fanning, Alice Englert (daughter of Jane Campion), Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Annette Benning, Timothy Spall and Oliver Platt. Set in 1962 London, the film recently debuted at the Telluride Film Festival, with additional screenings at Toronto and the upcoming New York Film Festival.

This is a big buy for fledgling indie distributor A24, led by former Oscilloscope exec David Fenkel, who is planning an Oscar-qualifying run for the film in 2012 (to push 14-year-old Fanning's remarkable performance as budding political radical and poet), with a theatrical release in early 2013.

Check out our extensive recent interview with Potter here, and our review of "Ginger & Rosa" here.
