Film Club: Booksmart

This week on Film Club, my good friend and comedian Emmett Montgomery joined me to discuss one off his favorite films, the 2019 comedy Booksmart. Directed by Olivia Wilde (in her feature directorial debut) and written by Emily Halpern, Sarah Haskins, Susanna Fogel, and Katie Silberman. It stars Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever.

Logline: Academic overachievers Amy and Molly thought keeping their noses to the grindstone gave them a leg up on their high school peers. But on the eve of graduation, the best friends suddenly realize that they may have missed out on the special moments of their teenage years. Determined to make up for lost time, the girls decide to cram four years of not-to-be missed fun into one night — a chaotic adventure that no amount of book smarts could prepare them for.

This is a spoiler-filled episode. So you may want to watch the film and then come back and watch the video or listen to the audio-only podcast.

He has a wife and three children and desperately wants to learn to make the perfect homemade pizza.
