About Booksmart

Getting straight A's. Giving zero F's. Screenwriter Katie Silberman '09 and first-time director Olivia Wilde give the teen comedy an upgrade with this joyful, unpredictable adventure shared by two straight-A seniors cramming four years of fun into one night. With rapid-fire dialogue punctuated by brilliant moments of cinematic whimsy this hilarious romp is "wickedly sharp and more than meets the eye." (LA Times). D: Olivia Wilde, US, 2019, 1h45m

About Screenwriter Katie Silberman '09

Katie Silberman '09 didn't study film at Dartmouth—but she loved reading movie scripts. "I printed out so many scripts that I used up all my printing credit in the first three days of every semester," she remembers. Among those many pages was a script for a fledgling teen comedy titled Booksmart. Silberman remembers printing and reading the screenplay, which chronicled the adventures of two female best friends on the last night of high school, around her fourth year at Dartmouth.
