The directorial debut of Olivia Wilde, Booksmart is a razor-sharp comedy starring Beanie Feldstein, Kaitlyn Dever and Jason Sudeikis.

Study hard, don’t slack off, get into a good college: that’s the formula for high school success, or so think best friends Molly (Feldstein) and Amy (Dever). That’s until they discover that their hard-partying classmates are also bound for the Ivy League. 

Putting aside the ring binders, they commit to spending the last night of high school experiencing the debauched life unlived. 

Actor Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut rewrites teen movie clichés to tell a smart, inclusive story that fizzes with superb set pieces and hilarious performances. Booksmart is a tale of female camaraderie that is freewheeling and frank, with many painfully relatable moments. 

“By far, one of the most perfect coming-of-age comedies I have ever seen.” – YOLANDA MACHADO, THEWRAP
