"Booksmart is a love letter for any young woman who has ever stayed home on a Friday night to watch a Ken Burns documentary. 4/4 stars" - Globe & Mail

“Written by Emily Halpern, Sarah Haskins, Susanna Fogel and Katie Silberman, and directed in a stunning debut by actress Olivia Wilde, Booksmart is the kind of feel-good teen movie young women plan their sleepovers around. Although its 'nerdy misfit high-schoolers seek darkness and transformation at an epic party the night before graduation' premise is a time-tested formula, Wilde’s film feels totally original and new.

“Wilde’s smart directing choices and the bravery of her two fearless leads transform a series of comic set-pieces, usually seen in fare such as American Pie, into iconic character moments. The two heroines of Booksmart (Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever) spend their movie secretly watching porn in the back of a Lyft driven by their high-school principal, having their parents kiss the face of the childhood panda they use as a masturbation aid, while also name-checking Susan B. Anthony and Malala Yousafzai. In short, they contain multitudes, as the film privileges their hearts and minds, delving deep into their contradictions and complexities.” - The Globe and Mail
