Two-time Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill‘s (SUPERBAD, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET) auspicious directorial debut Mid90s (which he also wrote) is a smart, funny, sweet and insightful coming-of-age film set in 1990s Los Angeles, where 13-year-old Stevie escapes his turbulent home life by hanging out with a new group of friends he meets at a local skate shop, plunging him into a world of fun, danger and excitement. With Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges, Katherine Waterston.
“If SUPERBAD launched an entire subgenre that mocks male insecurity, Mid90s reveals, almost tenderly, the devastation of trying to hide it.” (Salon.com)
“MID90s bristles with fun, feeling and the exhilaration that comes with risking life’s hairpin turns, and the skateboarding scenes are killer.” (Rolling Stone)
