100-Word Review: “Ginger & Rosa”

Elle Fanning sounds British, looks heart-breaking, acts very well. There. Now that THAT’S out of the way, Ginger (Rogers) & Rosa (Parks) made me want to claw my eyes out. For the first half, a group of very talented actors came together to tell the back-story that normally precedes you entering the cinema, for the second half everyone forgets what humans are. Both Ginger’s father and Rosa try to justify actions with dull, righteous ignorance, coming off less as an education in how “adults are the real children” and more as forgetful writing. In a nutshell: I CAN HAZ BETRAYAL?
