On the latest Geek Girl Riot we chat to Booksmart stars Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein, get you hyped for the movie, then talk the other leading ladies who inspire us onscreen.

We’re All About Booksmart
Every generation is defined by a teen movie—and Booksmart is tailor-made for the new class. Directed by Olivia Wilde, this coming-of-age comedy is about to steal your heart and become the highlight reel for your high school days. Sherin tells Day and Alex why they’re going to L-O-V-E it. See Booksmart in theaters on Friday!

In the Chat Lounge with Kaitlyn Dever + Beanie Feldstein
Sherin sat down with the film’s two leading ladies Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein, who play best friends Amy and Molly, to give you a sneak preview of Booksmart. They break down their characters, what it was like working with such an incredible female-driven script, and their friendship offscreen and on.

An Ode to Fabulous Femme Films
