Friday Night Film Series: BOOKSMART
(dir. Olivia Wilde, 2019, 105 min)
Booksmart is an unfiltered comedy about high school best friends and the bonds we create that last a lifetime. When bookworm Molly finds out that her less studious classmates are going to attend the same prestigious colleges that she and her best friend Amy have worked really hard to get into, it shatters her understanding of the world. Instead of enjoying their usual quiet night in, Molly convinces Amy to dress up—they’re going to party at least once before they walk across that graduation stage. Capturing the spirit of our times, this debut feature by Olivia Wilde is a coming-of-age story for a new generation.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Educational Studies, Women’s Studies, Core Communities and Identities, and Film Society.
