In the 1960s London, two teenage girls, best friends since childhood, are active against a possible nuclear holocaust during the Cuban missile crisis, and ... compete for the affection of one of the fathers. I was surprised what so many good actors (including Christina Hendricks with a British accent!) saw in this slow rhythm film, as the relevance of the subject matter to our times was lost on me. Keep an eye on Elle Fanning: she will become a star bigger than her sister, Dakota.
