Our twenties are supposed to be the time of our lives—it’s when we hit a pivotal point where we embark on the journey to self-discovery while transitioning into adulthood. But it’s also the stage of our life where we face many challenges and struggle to learn how to overcome these obstacles. Luckily, we have pop culture to guide us. Here are just a few movies that tackle some of the issues we millennials might face as we learn to adult.
Ways to beat the summer heat: eat a Popsicle (fleeting and drippy), buy a hand held fan from the dollar store (will probably break) or go watch the film adaptation of Lady Macbeth at TIFF Bell Lightbox (bring the popsicle and fan if you want).
If you haven’t already guessed, we’ve got two tickets to give away to watch Lady Macbeth at TIFF Bell Lightbox! Starring our new girl crush Florence Pugh, this film is full of passion, drama and just the right amount of evil.

A University of South California study revealed what we already knew was true–Hollywood’s biggest films are seriously lacking diversity. Between 2007-2014, only 30.2 per cent of speaking or named characters were women.
The report also found that most characters in top-grossing films last year were: white (73.1 per cent), straight (only 19 characters were gay/lesbian/bisexual), and young (19.9 per cent of female characters were 40 to 64 years old). Most of these films were also directed by men, only 1.9 per cent had female directors.
Considering that women make up half of the population and workforce, the numbers are shocking. In light of this news, we’ve asked our colleagues and rounded up our favourite films of women, by women and for women.
