Repertory Series Archive(Some of) The Best of 2019

Booksmart

Double Feature with THE FAREWELL (3:00, 7:15)

2019 • dir Olivia Wilde w/Beanie Feldstein, Kaitlyn Dever, Billie Lourd, Molly Gordon, Skyler Gisondo, Diana Silvers, Jason Sudeikis, Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte, Jessica Williams • 105 min • DCP

On the last day of class, two over-achievers realize that they’ve missed out on having any fun in high school and set out to realize their teenage dreams over the course of one wild night. Olivia Wilde directs two great performances from Feldstein and Dever and the honest and hilarious script shines – but a gloriously unhinged appearance from Billie Lourd pushes this film towards the legendary.

“Booksmart is a teen sex romp well suited for the summer of 2019: feminist but not preachy, raunchy but not nasty, emotionally intelligent but not sentimental.”
– Dana Stevens, Slate

“It’s a high school movie that doesn’t have sadistic bullies shoving helpless nerds into lockers, just a bunch of kids that, for all their flaws, are kind, funny, worldly, whip-smart and unapologetically themselves.”
– Katie Rife, AV Club

“Puts a fresh spin on the coming-of-age night-of comedy because it’s focused on two girls, one of whom is also queer.”
– Erin Keane, Salon.com

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
