Mid90s

Actor Jonah Hill makes his directorial debut with a raw diamond of coming-of-age drama, which plays in the LA 90s skater scene.
Thirteen-year-old Stevie (Sunny Suljic) grew up in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s in a broken home. His single mother Dabney (Katherine Waterston) keeps the family afloat, while Stevie and his older brother Ian (Lucas Hedges) spend most of their time on their own. When Stevie gets past the Motor Avenue Skateshop one day, he is immediately impressed by the skaters there, their friendship, the free lifestyle, the adventure.
Stevie is reluctantly included in the clique by senior skaters Ruben (Gio Galicia), Ray (Na-kel Smith), “Fuckshit” (Olan Prenatt) and “Fourth Grade” (Ryder McLaughlin). They baptize him “Sunburn” and take him to skate, to parties, with his new friends Stevie makes his first party and drug experiences, gets to know girls. Finally he seems to have found a family. But to be a part of it, he embarks on more and more dangerous stunts.
“Mid90s” – Backgrounds
As an actor, Jonah Hill has long since emancipated himself from his early days as a comedian and can even look back on two Oscar nominations for his performances in “The Art of Winning – Moneyball” and “The Wolf of Wall Street”. With the coming-of-age drama and skateboard movie “mid90s” Hill now makes his directorial debut, for which he also wrote the screenplay.
The story – somewhere between “kids” and actual skater videos settled – plays in the Los Angeles of the 1990s and was received by the critics very well. Hill has paid particular attention to making his film appear authentic. Although Sunny Suljic (“The Killing Of A Sacred Deer”), Katherine Waterston (“Logan Lucky”) and Lucas Hedges (“The Prodigal Son”) are not completely unknown in the leading roles to see. However, many of the skaters have never been in front of the camera.
To underline the lifestyle of the ’90s, the film was shot in 16mm film in 4: 3 format, which gives “mid90s” the dirty, worn look of old skate videos. And if that’s not enough to look back on the ’90s nostalgic, then the soundtrack with tracks from the Pixies, the Wu-Tang-Clan, Cypress Hill and The Misfits should do the rest.
