Jonah Hill makes his directorial debut with this coming-of-age story about a teenage boy who finds his scene when he meets a group of neighbourhood skateboarders.

Trust Jonah Hill to make a coming-of-age story that's wickedly irreverent and bursting with heart. The two-time Academy Award nominee's singular gifts as an actor translate seamlessly into his debut as writer-director. MID90S is goofy, intelligent, and tender - and it might have you eyeing that skateboard collecting dust in the garage.

Stevie (Sunny Suljic, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) is a sweet 13-year-old about to explode. His mom (Katherine Waterston, Inherent Vice) is loving and attentive, but a little too forthcoming about her romantic life. His big brother (Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges, Boy Erased and Ben is Back) is a taciturn and violent bully. So Stevie searches his working-class Los Angeles suburb for somewhere to belong. He finds it at the Motor Avenue skate shop.

Set to a connoisseur's soundtrack of '90s rock and rap, MID90S captures the hijinks and hair-raising risk-taking of pre- digital-age teen life. Stevie's pals can be obnoxious one moment and exceptionally kind (even wise) the next. Employing brilliantly timed jump-cuts and a surprisingly spare aesthetic that owes as much to François Truffaut as Judd Apatow, Hill proves to be a uniquely sophisticated chronicler of youthful folly while delivering some of the funniest scenes you'll find on screen this year.

Jonah Hill has made a Skate Film That Doesn't Suck, capturing what it's like to grow up a skate rat in a way no other mainstream film has.

If Superbad launched an entire subgenre that mocks male insecurity, Mid90s reveals, almost tenderly, the devastation of trying to hide it.

Hill envisions these endless days with a kid's-eye abstraction that's both timeless and firmly entrenched in its own era: his skate punks banter like Kevin Smith extras, wander like Richard Linklater dreamers, and misbehave like Larry Clark lost boys
