    Today marks the 27th birthday of everyone's favorite boho-pioneering, Starbucks-toting twins. As major forces in the worlds of fashion and entertainment, it's only fitting that we celebrate the Olsens in the most esteemed way possible — through a critical, illuminating filmic retrospective. While many of their fans know them for their contributions to The Row, Elizabeth & James, Superga, and the CFDA, we here at R29 are choosing to honor the Olsens for their groundbreaking works of cinema.

    From their critically acclaimed mystery series to box-office blockbusters, they've been paving the way for artists (nay, auteurs) everywhere for decades. Whether we're watching them solve any crime by dinner time, or cheering along as they band together to overthrow an evil, gold-digging stepmother, we're constantly enthralled by their overarching talents and the provocative nature of their many works. To commemorate this momentous occasion of their 27th year, we've extracted their five most pivotal films for a look back.
