Booksmart and high school besties

Booksmart, Olivia Wilde's racous directorial debut, shows teenage girls being loud, funny, crass and disgusting. Anna and Hen talk about why it's so rare to see that on-screen, recount (a bit) of their own school days and talk about why the American high school movie has become a guidebook for teenagers everywhere.

Booksmart, starring Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever, is out in UK cinemas on May 27th. It follows two teens - Molly (Feldstein) and Amy (Dever) - facing down graduation as they realise they've spent too long at school studying and not enough time partying.
