Lucky Cineworld Unlimited members caught teen comedy Booksmart in advance last night. This critically acclaimed coming of age comedy is the feature film debut of actor Olivia Wilde, focusing on two academic high-fliers determined to make their final night of high school the most debauched and outrageous ever.
The movie hinges on Wilde's perceptive direction and two winning central performances from Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird) and Kaitlyn Dever (Beautiful Boy). So what did the Unlimited crowd make of the movie? We've rounded up several responses, starting with this from DeFoo.
I can thoroughly recommend viewing @BooksmartUK when it goes on general release; a very original take on the American high school coming-of-age movie - funny, gentle, intelligent, emotional. Loved it. Thanks @cineworld for another great #CineworldUnlimited preview.#Booksmart— DeFoo (@dexfoo) May 6, 2019
Anita says the movie has already established itself as a firm favourite.
Anton is another fan, praising the movie's exuberant humour.
Kat says it will surely go down as a teen movie classic.
Just caught @BooksmartUK at the @cineworld #CineworldUnlimited screening & LOVED it. I thought they didn't make teen films like that anymore but @oliviawilde proved me wrong. Seek out from 24th May UK peeps. pic.twitter.com/eWYuwlYmht— Kat Hughes (@GizmoShikari) May 6, 2019
Kyle lauds the movie for its authentic look at the messiness of teen friendships.
#Booksmart is a terrific time. A genuine Coming-of-Age tale with a twist that looks into friendship, relationships and the horrors of High School in a hilarious and genuinely authentic way. Highly recommended! @cineworld #CineworldUnlimited pic.twitter.com/o2TAbrx2CI— Kyle Snape (@kylemsnape) May 7, 2019
And Chris Pearson says the movie is a charmer, although it sounds like we'll also have to watch through our fingers at times...
On the other hand William says Booksmart didn't do it for him – but he nevertheless loves the Unlimited journey he's on.
Whilst #BooksmartMovie had a few laughs it didn’t do it for me. Others seem to be raving about it though. Not every #CineworldUnlimited visit is going to be amazing but still great to see lots of films I would never otherwise see.— William Kennedy (@willk_london) May 6, 2019
And good news for those who can't wait to see it again: Booksmart is released on 27th May.
And your Unlimited journey doesn't stop there: energetic Scottish drama Beats screens on 8th May, focusing on two teenage friends navigating the 1990s Glasgow rave scene.
