    Plot: A teenage boy looking for a place to escape from troubles at home joins a gang of skateboarders.

    We have a London buses situation in regards to skateboarding films. I can recall very few skateboarding related films I have ever seen. Then suddenly in the space of just a few months, I see the pretty good Skate Kitchen and now Mid90s.



    From the opening scene, it was already showing enough references to let you know that we were heading back to the 1990's.
    It was great seeing all the trends and pop culture plastered all over the screen.


    But that was quickly sidelined for a pretty powerful, funny and sometimes brutal story about adolescence, friendship and underestimation of judgement.
    Leading the way is youngster Sunny Suljic, who I remember playing a minor role in The House With A Clock In Its Walls last Autumn. He truly portrayed the struggles of a young boy wanting to just age a few years to experience what all of his peers are experiencing.


    I think that was helped massively by the direction of Jonah Hill who is making his debut behind the camera as director. Even though Hill has found plenty of success as an actor over the last decade, it looks director could be his true calling card.


    As well as Suljic, there were plenty of impressive performances from fellow youngsters Na-Kel Smith, Olan Prenatt, Gio Galicia and Ryder McLaughlin. I have to mention the casting of Katherine Waterston and Lucas Hedges. Waterston showed great maturity in her role and gave a nice little sub-story of her characters struggles throughout the film. As for Hedges, while he may not have had much screen-time, his impact was noticeable that helped the themes of the story enhance even more.


    I thought this was a very well made piece of work with many rewarding results, especially a final that will just make you smile. The story may be one we have seen, but the large amount of well developed characters on offer with strong performances by young actors along with the beautiful cinematography gave it a refreshing edge that I can see this becoming an indie favourite.
