Jonah Hill‘s directorial debut, Mid90s, premiered this month at the Toronto Film Festival. The film follows an LA teen skater (played by real-life LA teen skater Sunny Suljic) as he gets up to all that mid-’90s business that older skaters have fond memories of. The current wave of ’90s nostalgia is cresting right at the perfect time for Hill’s film, and with the added marquee name recognition at the helm this will with any luck be this generation’s KIDS (itself a critically acclaimed mid-’90s film following similar themes).
Collider‘s Adam Chitwood was lucky enough to watch the screening. His review was published on the respected film news site today, giving Mid90s a final grade of B+. In other words: Hill nailed it first try.
Mid90s will open on October 19. Visit the film’s official page for additional info. Check out the trailer (again and again) below:
