BOOKSMART | Final Restricted Trailer.
High school seniors Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) have been best friends since childhood, but are considered pretentious by their peers. Amy is out and has a crush on a girl named Ryan; Molly urges her to pursue a relationship with Ryan (Victoria Ruesga) before they graduate. On the eve of graduation, Molly confronts classmates talking about her in the bathroom. She tells them she got into Yale, but they reveal that, despite their partying, they too got into prestigious colleges and job recruitments. Furious, Molly tells Amy they should have enjoyed their time in high school more. She proposes they go to a graduation party held by classmate Nick, and Amy reluctantly agrees.
Realizing that neither of them knows the party's address, Molly calls Jared (Skyler Gisondo), a wealthy classmate who likes her. He brings them to his party aboard a yacht; only his drug-crazed friend Gigi (Billie Lourd) is there, and she feeds the girls strawberries before jumping off the yacht. Amy suggests they go home, but Molly calls a "Malala" (their code for unconditionally doing what the other wants to do). The girls call a Lyft and are shocked to be picked up by their principal, Jordan Brown (Jason Sudeikis).
To prepare Amy for potential sex with Ryan, Molly insists they watch pornography, which accidentally plays through the car speakers. Brown drops them off at what they think is Nick's aunt's house but turns out to be the home of their classmate George (Noah Galvin), who is hosting a murder mystery party. They encounter Gigi, who reveals that the strawberries were laced with powerful hallucinogenic drugs. Amy and Molly experience a bad trip and hallucinate that they are George's sister's plastic fashion dolls. They manage to escape George's house, but Gigi reveals that Molly secretly likes Nick.
