Well hello there!
I found a very interesting article on how to choose a creative medium. If you want to make art / express yourself / be creative, but are overwhelmed by the choices out there and possibilities (sculpting, film, painting, poetry, music, performance art, dance, animation, Etc) this post may help.
Good movie shout it: the following are three movies that are really great in my opinion. They all have powerful and empowering messages. Some of them (Speak and The Diary of a Teenage Girl) delve into pretty dark matter. Bread and Butter is lighter. All of them have good endings and are great movies.
Speak is a book by Laurie Halse Anderson. I read it in college (not for class) and loved it immensely. This is the movie trailer for the movie. Yes, that is a young Kristen Stewart.
