The article is rather interesting; Make sure to read it below:

[…]It’s certainly there when she talks about Maleficent, the adaptation of Sleeping Beauty she recently finished shooting. If you were to plot Fanning’s ascension on the Y-axis, it’s the natural next step: the director is first-time filmmaker Robert Stromberg, who won an Oscar for his art direction of Avatar, and she’s starring opposite Angelina Jolie. She’s never been involved in a project with so much CGI, or so much Angelina Jolie, and was clearly overjoyed to have been granted access to both. “It was just crazy, otherworldly. Angelina Jolie!” She cuts herself off and gasps. “I remember meeting her for the first time, and she gave me a big hug and said, ‘We’re going to have so much fun!’ And I was just like, Yay! She’s touching my body!”…FULL ARTICLE

“…Leaving auds to marvel at the gorgeous cinematography and scarlet-red hair of its heroine, earnestly played by Elle Fanning in a project undeserving of her talents.” FULL MOVIE REVIEW

““Ginger & Rosa” seals the deal for Fanning as a serious performer who is going to have a long and valued career in cinema.” FULL MOVIE REVIEW

“Over a small number of films, Elle Fanning has displayed a transcendent range that many would argue has surpassed the talents of her better-known sister Dakota.[…] Unfortunately, the rest of the Potter’s endeavor is a ponderous mess that negates the best aspects of Fanning’s performance.” FULL MOVIE REVIEW

Elle has booked yet another role! This time it will be a movie adaptation of the novel by Kevin Henkes Olive’s Ocean; The movie will be produced by Donald Rosenfeld and written by Christina Hammonds Reed. Elle will play a teen that after discovering a peer who died recently wanted to become her friend, goes through a summer of soul searching.

The movie[…]came about because of Rosenfeld’s experience with Elle Fanning’s sister, Dakota. He produced Effie, the film that was scripted by Emma Thompson and directed by Richard Laxton, with Dakota Fanning playing the title role of Effie Gray, the teen bride of Victorian art critic John Ruskin. While on set, Rosenfeld asked her sister Elle what her favorite book was, and when she answered Olive’s Ocean, that started the process. “I haven’t worked with a more dedicated actor than Dakota and can’t wait to work with Elle,” Rosenfeld said. “There is such talent, they are young but they are old souls.” FULL ARTICLE
