(Olivia Wilde, US 2019, 102 min., 35mm)
One of the best comedies of the last decade, Booksmart recounts a single night in the lives of best friends Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) during their last week of high school. Amy and Molly are near the top of their class, using their time to maximize their standing and launch their collegiate and professional careers by getting into the best colleges. When news comes out, however, that students who have not applied themselves are getting the same opportunities, the two friends realize they might have missed their only opportunity to live life to its fullest. With a plan to crash a popular party, Amy and Molly try to pack four years of experience into a night filled with sex, drugs, crime, and riotous comedy.
