Review: Mid90s

Title: Mid90s
MPAA Rating: R
Director: Jonah Hill
Starring: Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges, Katherine Waterston
Runtime: 1 hr 24 mins
What It Is:  It’s the mid-1990’s and Stevie (Suljic) is a teenager growing up in Los Angeles with an older brother (Hedges, who occasionally beats him up), and his single mom (Waterson). One day he wanders into a skate shop, and after trading his brother for an old skateboard begins his coming of age with skateboarding, smoking, drinking, and more.

What We Think: Having grown up in the 90s like the main character, I liked the feel of the movie and the nostalgia it brought back, from the music which included a lot of 1990’s Hip-Hop and some terrific original music from the team of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Our Grade: A-. This was a great coming of age movie set in the 1990’s and made me a bit nostalgic to a time where things were a lot simpler. For his directorial debut, Jonah Hill (who also wrote the movie) did a great job.

After the screening, there was a Q&A that some of the actors in the movie participated in, which was followed by questions from the audience.
