Deets: Melena Ryzik, New York Times culture reporter, hosts an advance screening of “Booksmart,” an unfiltered comedy about high school best friends on the eve of graduation, followed by a Q&A with director Olivia Wilde and stars Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein. A breakout film at this year’s South by Southwest film festival, “Booksmart” was praised by The New York Times for its “killer soundtrack” and “high laugh-per-minute ratio.” It focuses on two academic overachievers who, determined to make up for lost time, decide to cram four years of fun into one outrageous evening. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear Wilde discuss her directorial debut and co-stars Dever and Feldstein to share the film’s fresh take on female friendship and the bonds we create that last a lifetime.

Who You May Spot: Melena Ryzik, Olivia Wilde, Kaitlyn Dever, Beanie Feldstein
