Hull Independent Cinema presents: MID90s
At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS
Stevie, a thirteen-year-old in 1990s-era Los Angeles spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop.
In 1990s Los Angeles, life seems to be stacking the odds against 13-year-old Stevie. His older brother Ian regards him as a convenient punch bag, and his lonely mother Dabney can’t provide the comfort he needs. What would it take to become one of the cool kids? Perhaps hanging out with the regulars at the Motor Avenue skate shop could be his passport to winning friends and fitting in.
Beautifully in tune with the sounds and feel of the period, MID90S shows that director Jonah Hill has a keen eye for detail, a flawless dedication to authenticity, and the ability to tease the best from his actors. Suljic is a shining star as Stevie, winning your heart as someone who wears life’s blows as badges of honour. Mid90s is a warm, hilarious celebration of the irrepressible, never-say-die spirit.
Featuring Sunny Suljic, Katherine Waterston, Lucas Hedges

“If Superbad launched an entire subgenre that mocks male insecurity, Mid90s reveals, almost tenderly, the devastation of trying to hide it.” – Salon
“Jonah Hill’s directorial debut, from a script he wrote himself, rewinds back to Clinton-era L.A., where a young kid gets an education in sex, drugs and skaterat culture. The result feels rough-hewn, hands-on and totally irresistible.” – Rolling Stone
MIDS90S is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
