4.0 out of 5 stars early sixties gritty realism, 15 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Ginger & Rosa [DVD] (DVD)
As a genre it was reminiscent of films such as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (DVD +Blu-ray), Cathy Come Home [DVD] [1966] capturing very well the post war societal and economic doldrums of British society. Though I think to really enjoy the film it would be necessary to have some period understanding or it could seem a bit weird.

More about Ginger than Rosa, (though her story is well told too) it's the struggle of a young woman in a dysfunctional family in bohemian circumstances, trying to extract some meaning from life at a time when it thought that imminent nuclear war was a likelihood and the future seemed bleak. (The Cuban missile crisis and origins of CND featured)

Some great character roles played by an interesting cast, including the amazing Timothy Spall and Annette Benning both delivering depth creating background roles, and for me, Christina Hendricks actually displaying acting talent.

It's an elegant film that captures something of the period.
