The films defending the demonised millennial generation

Millennials are often characterised by the media as entitled narcissists. But cinema is doing a better job at capturing this maligned demographic. Actor-turned-director Brady Corbet’s Vox Lux is one such film. It is the sprawling account of Celeste (Raffey Cassidy), a 13-year-old musical prodigy who survives a horrific school shooting in Staten Island, New York on the very cusp of the new millennium – this shooting is clearly based on the real-life 1999 Columbine massacre, which itself inspired Gus Van Sant’s chilling Palme d’Or-winner Elephant, the earliest film in the season.
