Jonah Hill’s directorial debut with coming-of-age skate culture film ‘Mid 90s’
Jonah Hill has shared the trailer for his directorial debut with coming-of-age skate culture film ‘Mid 90s’.
The film, written and directed by Hill, follows 13-year-old Stevie over the course of the summer as he makes friends with a group of skaters. The film also stars Lady Bird‘s Lucas Hedges as Stevie’s older brother and Katherine Waterston as their mother.
Waterston, who doesn’t appear in the trailer, recently heaped praise on Hill’s directing skills, saying: “He is a brilliant director. The cast was incredible. Sunny Suljic plays my son, and he is one of the most extraordinary little creatures I have ever met. He is incredibly talented, very young and an amazing skateboarder and just a cool kid.”
Adding a summary of the film, Waterson added: “It is about a skateboarding kid, there’s also the family story that’s very intense and painful and complicated. I play the mum. But she’s not a typical mom. Lucas Hedges is my other son.”
