Director Olivia Wilde’s debut feature film is a charming comedy, one that’s winning critical praise from top reviewers. On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic achievers and their closest girlfriends realise they should have worked less & played more. They decide to make up for lost time. On this slight premise Wilde builds a fun-packed, smart film that’s stylishly shot. She beautifully captures the pressures for young people of balancing studying, social media and having a life, but fundamentally this is a film about friendship and the unhelpfulness of labelling.
‘Reaches the audience-friendly highs of a studio comedy while retaining an indie sensibility … it feels fresh, a film that will be rewatched and quoted.’
