Dir. Jonah Hill • 2019 • US • Drama • 85 mins • Cert 15

Jonah Hill’s directorial debut is an authentic coming-of-age period piece about a Los Angeles group of skateboarding misfits in the titularly named mid90s.

We follow 13-year-old Stevie as he finds solace from his abusive home life when a group of skaters take him under their wing and initiate him with rights of passages, from first cigarette and kiss, to his glorifying first ollie.

With a nostalgic use of 16mm film, and distinctive fisheye lens used to emulate archetypical skateboarding videos, Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill’s debut is a moving and undeniably raw love letter to skateboarding.
