Ginger & Rosa, directed by Sally Potter, has gone online with its first trailer. Centering around the title characters played by Elle Fanning (Super 8) and Alice Englert, the film follows two adolescent girls as they grow up in early 1960’s London. Their youthful interests in boys and hairstyles quickly become marginalized with the advent of the Cuban Missile Crisis looming over their heads.

Here is the official synopsis:
London, 1962. Two teenage girls – Ginger and Rosa — are inseparable; they play truant together, discuss religion, politics and hairstyles, and dream of lives bigger than their mothers’ frustrated domesticity. But, as the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, and the threat of nuclear holocaust escalates, the lifelong friendship of the two girls is shattered – by the clash of desire and the determination to survive.
