TRAILER: Jonah Hill’s Directorial Debut ‘Mid 90s’ Might Be A West Coast Version of ‘Kids’

Actor and comedian Jonah Hill will be making his directorial debut on the coming of age film Mid 90s, which focuses on the California skateboard culture of the 90s.

It looks like the film is set around 1994-1996 and even the trailer uses the 4:3 aspect ratio which older folks will understand is a ratio used for VHS tapes. This seems to echo the group of kids I grew up around which hits all the nostalgia notes for me, right down to the Street Fighter II t-shirt.

The film could to be a West Coast answer to the film Kids, which focused on the underbelly of NYC youth skateboard culture, drug use, sex and teens contracting AIDS.

However, Mid 90s will likely have a lighter tone.

Written and directed by Jonah Hill, Mid 90s follows Stevie, a thirteen-year-old in 90s-era LA who spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop.

A24 has set the release date for an awards friendly spot on October 19th, 2018.
