Booksmart

Booksmart, starring Beanie Feldstein as Molly and Kaitlyn Dever as Amy, is a fast-paced comedy. Molly and Amy spent their high school years steering clear of parties and slacking off in order to get into top tier colleges. When they discover, the day before graduation, that students who partied and had fun for the past 4 years also got into top tier colleges, they decide to make up for lost time. The movie follows them on the eve of graduation from one chaotic adventure to the next. While some situations are a little over-the-top, and there is mild raunchiness, mostly the movie has a sweetness behind it and tells the story of true friendship. I was rooting for Molly and Amy through the whole movie. — Denise Runyan
