10 films for Midults

AMERICAN BEAUTY

The male mid-life crisis laid bare. Remember, however bad it gets, at least you’re not married to Kevin Spacey.

IRIS

Inspiring documentary about 94-year-old style icon, Iris Apfel, patron saint of spring chickens everywhere. May lead to major wardrobe overhaul.

YOUNG ADULT

Charlize Theron’s alcoholic YA writer smacks smug married in the face in this acid-laughs school reunion comedy from the writer of Juno.

LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED

Well, love and Pierce Brosnan. Swedish romcom that reassures us that being Midult (not in a Rene Russo way) and bald from chemo is no obstacle to shagging a former 007 on a beach. Love those Danes.

SERIAL MOM

For those days when you’re just fed up of being fucking perfect and just want to fucking kill the fuckers.

MAGIC MIKE XXL

Slash ‘anything with Channing Tatum in’. Because licking the screen counts as acceptable dessert.

THELMA AND LOUISE

Obvs.

DEATH BECOMES HER

Or Bridges of Madison County or Kramer Vs Kramer. Basically anything with Meryl Streep in. Even Mamma Mia! (possibly).

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE

Cathartic black and white horror. Deranged bitch-fight craziness starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.

WORKING GIRL

A reminder of how far we’ve come. Plus the big hair is hilarious.
