Director Olivia Wilde’s debut feature film is a charming comedy that’s winning critical praise from top reviewers. On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic achievers and best 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.’ Benjamin Lee, Guardian
