After SXSW 2019, the buzz for the upcoming comedy Booksmart is real.

In Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut, critics and SXSW attendees are talking about the comedic coming of age story about two teenage girls trying to cram all their fun in one night after working so hard through high school to get good grades for college.

The film stars Kaitlyn Dever, Beanie Feldstein, Lisa Kudrow, Jason Dudeikis, Billie Lourd and Will Forte.

Wilde has an impressive acting career with films TRON: Legacy, The Lazarus Effect and Cowboys & Aliens. She has appeared in numerous television shows with Vinyl and The O.C., House.

Wilde was at CinemaCon last week to receive the CinemaCon Breakthrough Director of the Year Award.
