The Gist: This is about two teenage rebel girls living in 1960s London. Fanning plays a teen whose dad, a charismatic writer (Alessandro Nivola) is a freethinking writer who wrecks his relationship with his daughter when he has an affair with her friend (Englert)...(more)
Cast: Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, Alessandro Nivola, and Jane Campion’s daughter Alice Englert.
List Worthy Reasons…: Two decades since she her magnificent debut (Orlando), Potter has fallen off the radar with what panned out to be further films experimenting with the form. We haven’t cared much for her recent slate, but with a Ban the Bomb movement and the sexual revolution serving as the backdrop, this counterculture item with a possible Lolita situation germinating makes this a rare Sally Potter film to look forward to.
Release Date/Status?: With casting already set and filming expected to begin in February, we expect a possible Venice/TIFF festival showing.
