TIME OUT SAYS

The current golden era of high-school movies is offering the Breakfast Club generation serious competition. Booksmart follows socially awkward, Ivy League-bound duo, Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein). The two pals’ smugness rings hollow – their equally nerdy peers have also got into exclusive universities, but those classmates who spent their time patying? They got in too. How did the two never learn to multitask? The classic high-school ‘types’ – the spoiled loner, the spaced-out drama chick, the buff bro – are all given the chance to evolve into genuine characterisations. And it all happens within the space of a single night. People, demand a Booksmart cinematic universe!

WHAT IS IT...
A likable, modern high school comedy 

WHY GO...
