In ‘Your Sad Girl Era’? Watch these movies.

For those nights where you just need to be in your feels.

By Vanessa Kyriakides

It’s movie night; you’re getting the sweatpants on, popping the popcorn, and getting comfy on the couch. The doors are locked and the curtains are closed. But, most importantly, your tissues are ready to go. It’s one of those nights where you need a good cry – like a really good cry – and a sad movie is the only thing that can make you happy.

Here are our best movies for ‘Sad Girl Era’:

CLOSE (2022)

Only watch this if you want to ugly cry. Seriously. 

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. 

Exploring how closeness and intimacy can look different for people, Close tells a tragic yet beautiful story that’ll stick with you long after the credits roll. 

Trigger Warning: This film deals with topics like depression and suicide. 


Have you ever been in your twenties? Have you ever had an identity crisis? Chances are you answered yes to at least one of those. Whether it’s not knowing what to do with your career, not having a stable love life, or just genuine confusion for what’s going on in the world (us too), you’ll find that you have more in common with The Worst Person in the World than you thought you did. 

P.S. You’ll also probably cry. 

LAST WEEK (2021)

Need a good, but like a really good cry that’s going to have you yawning after?

We got you. 

Although this pick is a short film, this one really gets you. Following a young couple and the aftermath of an untimely death, Last Week reminds us that time is borrowed, and we should cherish it while we have it. 

This film is our personal pick as the best movie to watch in your ‘sad girl era’.

What are yours?
