Told from a wildly original, fresh and modern perspective, Booksmart is an unfiltered comedy about high school friendships and the bonds we create that last a lifetime. Kaitlyn Dever (Short Term 12) and Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird) star as two academic superstars and best friends who, on the eve of their high school graduation, suddenly realize that they should have worked less and played more. Determined never to fall short of their peers, the girls set out on a mission to cram four years of fun into one night. Booksmart is the directorial debut of Olivia Wilde.
"What makes Booksmart land so delightfully is Wilde's handle on exactly how seriously to take her neurotic heroines. ... Booksmart manages to be inclusive and progressive, without being precious about anything or sacrificing an ounce of humor. It feels at once like a huge moment for the teen movie genre, and also effortless, effortless enough to make one wonder what took so long" (Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine)
