Passes with flying colors. The two lead characters Amy and Molly have conversations about a number of topics that don't include men.

Booksmart is a very entertaining film that doesn't only focus on talking about men. While the cast is young and not very well known, they play complex characters comically and authentically. While I do want to focus on the climax of the film, I'll settle with focusing on the scene at 35:20-38:00 when Amy and Molly are discussing porn while in the Uber of their school's principal. This relatable scene started with two women talking about a person of the same gender, and the joke about sex positive feminism.
