An astonishing coming-of-age story that hardly goes by the books and honestly, it's hard to believe that this is Olivia Wilde's directing debut.

Olivia Wilde is a tour-de-force of filmmaking.

A wonderful celebration of not just female friendship, but of a generation that's smart, cool and open to progression and inclusivity.

Almost certainly a teen classic in the making.

It's a lot harder than it looks to land this stuff. Wilde has done the hard yards, picking up tips from directors like Martin Scorsese (Vinyl) and Spike Jonze (Her) along the way.

It feels fresh and original, mostly because it does well the postmodern trick of mixing and matching old forms.

Olivia Wilde and company take something we've seen before, adjust the perspective just enough to make it fresh, and with sharp focus and fabulous leads, deliver a new high school classic.

A fresh spin on the coming-of-age storyline with a new female POV...one of the best of the year.

Hilarious and fascinating look at growing up nerdy.

The story, the players, and the two leads are all endearing in the very best of ways -- warm, funny, charming and bloody lovely.

Every aspect about 'Booksmart' subverts the stereotypical high school film, there are no eye roll moments of despair, every second is gold.

I really liked Beanie Feldstein in Ladybird, and she is matched in this film by Kaitlyn Dever. The characters they play, and the other characters they interact with in the film are what make this an exceptional film.
