I loved Sally Potter’s Orlando and still have images in my mind from that film many years later. So I was excited to see her latest film, Ginger & Rosa, a coming-of-age story about two best friends (Elle Fanning and Alice Englert) growing up in London in 1962. The imagery was beautiful, and the the two leads stunning. Christina Hendricks (Joan from Mad Men) makes an appearance as the Mom and brought a lot to a slight role. Annette Benning also shows up in a role not unlike the one she played in The Kids Are All Right. I couldn’t help but make comparisons and stack it up against Lone Scherfig’s An Education, since it touched upon similar topics.

The organization’s goals are to provide an intensive networking opportunity for female filmmakers while telling women’s stories on screen. WWFC founders say that the reason so many women apply to the challenge is because they know that the film industry revolves around connections — and WWFC provides the perfect opportunity to make them.
