Bestselling Canadian author Ann-Marie MacDonald is back with a powerful drama about motherhood, family bonds and the power — and pressures — of love. Adult Onset follows a successful YA author, Mary Rose, who has semi-retired in her early 40s and set up a comfortable life in Toronto with her partner Hilary, a busy theatre director and their two children. As Mary Rose begins revisiting her past, life as she knows it threatens to unravel and Mary Rose struggles to deal with the implications that could mean for her and her children. $32, Indigo Chapters: www.chapters.indigo.ca
Get a closer look at the queer world of roller derby in Erica Tremblay’s documentary In the Turn. Focusing on the Vagine Regime, an international queer network of LGBT skaters and allies, Tremblay’s film shines a new light on the fastest growing sport in the world, with particular attention to the journey of Crystal, a 10-year-old transgender Canadian girl who is not allowed to play sports in her own school. Hitting the film festival circuit now, it’s worth catching if you can. www.intheturn.com

Shake it off
While many see it as a long-time coming, Taylor Swift has finally released her first full on pop album and the result couldn’t be more fun. Her album 1989 is filled with fun, danceable songs you’ll find yourself playing again and again. This musical departure from country pop days is a most welcome one and a sign of hopefully good things to come. $14.97 www.amazon.ca
