“Booksmart” Preview: Watch the First 6 Minutes of Olivia Wilde’s Queer High School Buddy Comedy Right Now

Olivia Wilde’s teen buddy comedy, Booksmart, a film about two feminist friends named Molly (Beanie Feldstein) and Amy (Kaitlyn Dever), one of whom is queer, trying to live it up before they graduate high school — because it turns out they spent so much time studying, they forgot to be teenagers — opens in sneak peek form around the country tonight, before landing in wide release next week. The reviews are starting to trickle in, and they’re almost all positive! And don’t worry, we’ve got a review coming at you ASAP. For now, though, what we’ve got is the first six minutes of the movie, uncut, for your viewing pleasure!

Are you excited? Cautionary optimist? Do you think this will make Janis Ian retroactively come out?

  1. I got to see a showing of this earlier this month. It’s a very fun movie, and I would have loved to have had a movie like this in high school.

  2. Well, that “Oh, that was a pretty gay looking thing I just did” look on Amy’s face was ~my adolescent years in a nutshell
