Booksmart Rated 15


Dir. Olivia Wilde. USA, 2019. 1h 42m. Starring Beanie Feldstein, Kaitlyn Dever, Billie Lourd, Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte, Jason Sudeikis.

A fresh and funny coming-of-age comedy about two high school bookworms who realise they’ve sacrificed having a good time in their relentless pursuit of good grades. This calls for one big party the night before graduation and make up for lost time. Olivia Wilde’s charming debut celebrates diversity, female solidarity, and the abundance of youth that should become one of the generation-defining comedies of the decade.

‘No ceremonious life lessons here — Booksmart lives in a euphoric moment of unapologetic youth that knows what it deserves. Cherish it, revisit the time capsule of our boisterously ambitious era endlessly.’ ★★★★★ Ella Kemp, Empire Magazine

‘Confidently assured, snappy and hilarious, Booksmart is destined to become a classic.’ ★★★★★ Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro
