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.

We’re pleased to be screening short film Samira, directed by Lainey Richardson, before the main feature. Find out more about our Shorts In The South initiative here.
