Our critics review "Booksmart," in which two super smart high school friends cram all the fun stuff they missed out on into the night before graduation; “Halston,” a documentary about the life and work of fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick; “Echo in the Canyon,” a documentary about the 1960s Laurel Canyon music scene; and the live-action remake of “Aladdin."
