Booksmart: First-Time Director Olivia Wilde Scores Big Laughs

Booksmart director Olivia Wilde talks with BlackTree TV journalist Juliana Jai Bolden about when she knew it was time to switch up her game and make from shift from acting to the director’s chair and much, much more!

The movie Booksmart is a whip-smart, laugh-out-loud funny and moving ride around the high school-centered world of Molly and Amy—two overachieving besties pressed to live their last night before graduation to the absolute fullest.

First-time director Wilde steers us through a hilarious tapestry of classmates, parents, an engaging young teacher (Jessica Williams), an amusingly dis-engaged principal (Jason Sudeikis), and many, many more relatable faces.
