Erin and Paul review two films about teenage girls, complicated frienships, and horndog fathers. First: GINGER & ROSA, the new coming-of-age film from writer/director Sally Potter starring Elle Fanning as a budding anti-nuclear activist in 1962 Britain; then, the sequel-spawning 1992 trash classic POISON IVY, starring Drew Barrymore as a scantily clad bleached-blonde temptress who seduces her way into the home of a rich but alienated high school classmate. Protest marches or rain-soaked sex scenes: which will prevail?
Also: short takes on NORWEGIAN WOOD, the FAST AND THE FURIOUS franchise, and REPULSION.
