Teenagers Molly (Beanie Feldstein) and Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) have been working hard all year studying making sure they get the best grades to get in the best colleges at the expense of having fun. Molly who is Student Body President over hears a conversation from fellow students who are more rebels than studious role models being accepted to prestigious colleges without the same dedication. She decides that her and best friend Amy must right this wrong. They are on a mission to make sure they don’t finish High School without at least attending one party.
What ensures is a night of riotous mayhem and self-reflecting revelations that more than makes up for the lack of partying throughout the year. Crashing three different parties in one night, unexpectedly taking drugs, trying to hold up a pizza delivery driver for the sake of a free ride to a party and loads more wild and crazy adventures.
Booksmart is a teenage romp that is brilliantly funny at times and at others it falls a bit flat. It covers all the diversity of student groups and is reminiscence of a modern day The Breakfast Club but with more shock and awe. Actress-turned-director Olivia Wilde has done a great job in capturing todays teenage life struggles and triumphs with a fun sense of humour.
