It’s gone slightly under the radar, but after a few underwhelming efforts Elizabeth Olsen is hitting a peak point in her career. After her breakthrough in “Martha Marcy May Marlene” six years ago, she starred in a number of forgettable indies (“Liberal Arts,” “I Saw The Light”) and a summer blockbuster most viewers probably don’t remember she was even in (“Godzilla”). She was fortunate enough to land the role of Wanda Maximoff aka The Scarlet Witch in Marvel Studios “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” however, and reprised her role in the very well received “Captain America: Civil War” a little over a year ago.

So all hail, Princess Diana! For the second week in a row, she has conquered the all mighty Box Office!
You commerce-and-finance majors might consider declaring a holiday. Liberal arts dweebs like me will be satisfied with being grateful for a genuinely satisfying movie-going experience.
There’s a lot to be said for the film and no doubt a lot of it is already being said, with, again no doubt, more to come. It’s the kind of flick that prompts après theater discussion, which is kind of rare these days, especially among those of us who have logged a load of birthdays. We were so happy with the afternoon’s entertainment that we didn’t mind not remembering where we left the car.
I’d like to focus on only one aspect of it and maybe get in some opinions about superhero movies in general. And it affords a »

A cinematic guide to confronting postgrad malaise.Fox Searchlight Pictures
It’s getting to be that time of year where if you listen closely, you can hear millions of parents asking soon-to-be graduates about their plans for the future. Transitioning out of an academic setting can be tricky. And with it comes a very specific kind of funk; a strange and aimless limbo aggravated by the dreaded…so — now what?
I’ve heard that millennials are adult babies and back in the day dinosaurs walked uphill both ways and payed for their entire tuition with the quarters they earned selling lemonade during the summer. Which is to say: the financial and social pressures shouldered by recent graduates are very real existential threats. Thankfully, small comfort though it may be, the disenchanted former student has more than a few cinematic role models to choose from.
