It’s time to put those books down and get ready for a night you’ll never forget! Olivia Wilde smashes her way into the filmmaking scene with a debut that puts a wildly fresh perspective on the coming-of-age comedy.
Two best friends, played brilliantly by rising stars Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein, have spent the past two years pushing themselves to be the best students they can possibly be but then on the last day of school they wonder: should they have played more and worked less?
What ensues is an epic night of mayhem and madness filled with the celebratory shenanigans we all remember from our final days of school. The film not only stands out with its female-centered narrative but progresses the genre by focusing on characters that are coming to terms with their sexuality.
The exploration of the modern themes is done masterfully without losing a second of humour, creating a story that engages with everyone. Filled with comedy star favourites like Jason Sudeikis and Lisa Kudrow, this directorial debut from Olivia Wilde gets straight A’s across the board for crafting a comedy masterpiece that has never been seen before.
