Mid90s follows Stevie, a thirteen-year-old in ’90s-era Los Angeles who spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop. Their influence makes him grow up just a little too fast.
More than a decade after his iconic performance in Superbad, Jonah Hill moves behind the camera with this ode to friendship as the source of true solace. Nostalgia permeates the celluloid texture of this exhilarating, heart-warming coming-of-age film that tenderly reclaims male vulnerability.
