Elle Fanning gives a star-making performance in Ginger and Rosa, the latest film from acclaimed writer-director Sally Potter.

Set in Britain during the ban-the-bomb 1960’s—the era of Potter’s own girlhood—the story focuses on the friendship of two adolescents, Ginger (Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert), life-long best friends. The girls become anti-nuclear activists, while their family lives crumble around them, as a wrenching betrayal leads Ginger to the verge of a breakdown. The stunning cast also includes Allesandro Nivola as Ginger’s emotionally callous father, Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men") as her mother and Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Timothy Spall as supportive neighbors. Join us in advance of its opening to see a film that won critical praise and played to enthusiastic audiences at this year’s New York Film Festival, and for a post-screening conversation with Sally Potter.

92Y is offering a FREE screening and Q+A to this event. Seats are based on availability and are on a first-come first-served basis
