WATCH: Booksmart Is The Revolutionary Coming Of Age Movie We All Need

Booksmart begins when best friends Amy and Molly realise that they’ve spent all of high school becoming the academic superstars of their school and none of it going to high school parties or doing anything slightly rebellious.

Amy convinces Molly to go out for a wild night of adventure, by telling her “nobody knows that we are fun”. This hilarious film follows the two girls as they spend one night making up for all the high school fun they missed out on. Their night is certainly unforgettable. Can they fit four years of fun into one night? You’ll have to wait and see…

Booksmart is receiving rave reviews from everyone who has seen it. Everyone on Twitter is calling it the female Superbad, which is quite the compliment considering how well known and successful Superbad was. John Defore from The Hollywood Reporter describes it as “Fantastic…an epic night of bad behaviour”. IndieWire says the film is “Hilarious. A riotous celebration of sisterhood”.

The films cast has all our favourites! Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Deverstar play Amy and Molly, the two inseparable best friends in the film. Beanie is best known for her work as Julie in Ladybird and Kaitlyn is known for her role in popular tv show Last Man Standing. Lisa Kudrow from the iconic tv show Friends also makes an appearance, alongside comedian Jason Sudekis. Billie Catherine Lourd, Skyler Gisondo and Diane Silvers are also featuring in this film.

This witty comedy is Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut. As well as being a brilliant director, Olivia is also a very successful actress, model and activist. Olivia supports many important movements such as Times Up and Planned Parenthood.
