Mid90s is a 2018 American coming-of-age comedy-drama film written and directed by Jonah Hill, in his feature directorial debut. It stars Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges and Katherine Waterston, and follows a 13-year-old boy who begins spending time with a mostly older group of skateboarders while living in 1990s Los Angeles.
The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2018 and was theatrically released in the United States on October 19, 2018, by A24. It was well received by critics, who called it a "promising first outing for Hill”, and praised the sense of nostalgia.
‘Mid90s is alive to the debauchery and obnoxiousness of teenagers, but also to their warmth and loyalty.’ Times (UK)
‘Mid90s cares less about making you laugh than enveloping you in the moment, even when the moments consist of nothing more than killed time - daft small talk, the lazy throb of hip hop, the therapeutic purr and slap of skateboard wheels on concrete.’ Daily Telegraph (UK)
