Booksmart is Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut, a comedy centred around two academic best friends Amy (Kaitlyn Dever - Short Term 12) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein - Ladybird) who discover that their fellow pupils have also been accepted into good colleges without having to study as much.
On the eve of their high school graduation the pair realize they should have maybe worked less and played much more . Determined to keep up with their peers, and remove their geeky perception they attempt to cram four years of fun into one night.
