The highly-anticipated film follows two ‘booksmart’ teenage girls, Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein), who decide to spice their last few months at high school by breaking all the rules.
The first trailer has been unveiled and shows queer character Amy as she ponders over asking a girl out. Molly tells her: “Do you know how many girls are going to be up your vagina next year?
“Every time I come to visit you, you’re going to be scissoring a different girl.”
They then discuss whether the art of scissoring, to which Molly encourages: “Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.”
The film also stars Lisa Kudrow, Billie Lourd, Noah Galvin, Jason Sudeikis, Skyler Gisondo, Jessica Williams and Will Forte. It’s helmed by American actress Olivia Wilde in her directorial debut.
