There is the director, Olivia Wilde, whose debut behind the camera is remarkably assured.In "Booksmart," you know your smile isn't likely to leave from the first moment that Amy (Dever) picks up Molly (Feldstein) for their last day of high school."Booksmart" feels like a victory lap in that evolution.Having spent their high-school years studying and preparing to launch their ambitious lives, Molly, the class president, is headed to Yale and Amy to Columbia. Wilde is especially good at sketching out the girls' classmates.One after another, the movie disarms superficial assumptions.Dever and Feldstein are incredibly good company. Feldstein, whose brother Jonah Hill was part of another excellent teen comedy ("Superbad"), has the show-stopping performance but even better is the more deadpan Dever. If "Booksmart" is the movie for this era, well, lucky kids.
