The ambitious directorial debut of actor Jonah Hill, Mid90s is a spiky tale of youthful rebellion with a killer soundtrack.
Mid90s tells the story of 13-year-old Stevie (Sunny Suljic), an awkward LA teen with ‘hair bigger than his head’, who escapes his bleak home life and violent older brother (Lucas Hedges) by befriending a group of skate punks who take him under their wings.
With great performances all around, this is a promising, and incredibly authentic debut from Jonah Hill. Piercing comedy and a nostalgic soundtrack build up a time capsule of 90s hip hop and skateboard culture.
