30. Booksmart (2019)
Directed by Olivia Wilde, Booksmart is a funny coming-of-age story that tells the story of two star students who decide it is time to party. The film follows Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) — two best friends who excel in school, but realize they may have missed out on some of high school’s more exhilarating experiences as they focused on getting good grades. As a result, the girls decide they are going to go all-out the night before graduation. The resulting madness is both exciting and hilarious. For those of you that like movies like Superbad, Booksmart will likely be up your alley.
