Closing night of Open Roof Festival 2019 kicks off with Basement Revolver, a dream pop band currently making waves in the Toronto scene, before wrapping up the season with Olivia Wilde’s critically acclaimed, and brilliantly hilarious, directorial debut, Booksmart. A fresh, feminist take on raunchy teen-comedies, Booksmart
stars Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein as two high-school
high-achievers who realize they may have missed out on all the fun they
could have been having when they were busy hitting the books. They
decide to make up for an academic career’s worth of fun in one epic
night of mayhem. Director Olivia Wilde
maintains laughs and energy throughout, with a rollicking soundtrack to
boot. A coming of age story for a new generation, like
Clueless and Mean Girls before it, “Booksmart
is a love letter for any young woman who has ever stayed home on a
Friday night to watch a Ken Burns documentary.” (Chandler Levack,
Globe and Mail)
