We've got your guide to the most anticipated events in May, including a hot music festival, two major albums, a combined movie-makeup product launch, and a fashion collaboration with ties to a stylish first lady. Read on for all the details.
Beale Street Music Festival2 of 11
Don't let the Memphis setting mislead you: Beale Street has much more than country music. The eclectic lineup includes Kid Rock, Joan Jett, Snoop Lion (f.k.a. Snoop Dogg), and Juicy J.
"Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?"3 of 11
From Roz Chast—a New Yorker cartoonist since 1978—comes a graphic memoir about coping with the challenges of aging parents. Using quirky color cartoons, Chast expertly finds the comic relief amid the dementia, broken hips and assisted living.
"Shine On"4 of 11
After a four-year hiatus, Sarah McLachlan makes her return with a new album. The singer has described Shine On as the most autobiographical and personal of anything she's written. A deluxe edition (only available at Target) will feature two bonus tracks: "What's It Gonna Take" and "Little B."
"Palo Alto"5 of 11
Based on James Franco's short-story collection published in 2010, Palo Alto features a series of intersecting stories about high school life in a Northern California suburbia. It's tempting to write the film off as a Franco vanity project, but don't judge too quickly: Director Gia Coppola (Francis's granddaughter and Sofia's niece) has proven she's inherited her family's eye for visual and stylish storytelling, while actors Emma Roberts and Jack Kilmer (son of Val Kilmer) are naturals as angsty high schoolers.
"We Were Liars"6 of 11
Looking for a page-turner? The YA mystery We Were Liars is getting rave reviews for its surprising twists and spot-on portrayal of an upper-crust New England clan with a private island off Cape Cod. You'll keep reading to find out just what happened to Cadence Eastman Sinclair when, two summers earlier, a suspicious blow to the head left her memory fragmented and her family hiding secrets.
"Ghost Stories"7 of 11
For a little insight into what went wrong between Gwyneth and Chris Martin (or just because you like the music), check out Coldplay's first album since 2011. In an interview, Martin talked about how his relationship impacted the music and how it reflects him at his most vulnerable.
Banana Republic Marimekko Collection8 of 11
Get ready for a colorful retro-inspired summer wardrobe as Marimekko and Banana Republic's capsule collection debuts in stores. The 25-piece line of apparel and accessories will feature the Finnish design firm's iconic '60s prints and silhouettes—a favorite of Jacqueline Kennedy, who wore a variety of Marimekko dresses during the 1960 presidential campaign.
"Blended"9 of 11
Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler reunite on screen in Blended, arriving in theaters today. After an awful blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) vow never to see each other again. Then they unknowingly book a vacation at the same resort.
"The Normal Heart"10 of 11
The year is 1981 and a mysterious epidemic is beginning to surface in New York City—one that only seems to be affecting the gay community. Based on the Tony Award–winning play by Larry Kramer, The Normal Heart (starring Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts) tells the story of the activists and medical community determined to educate a city and nation about HIV-AIDS. Watch it on HBO at 9/8c.
MAC & "Maleficent"11 of 11
Coinciding with the release of the Sleeping Beauty–inspired movie Maleficent—starring Angelina Jolie—MAC releases its latest makeup collection. The limited-edition line of 11 products includes lipstick, powders, eye shadows and polishes, all meant to help you re-create the actress's stunning look.
