Hill doesn't disappoint with his debut film, Mid90s.
10 September 2018 | by hollyrclemensSee all my reviews

Jonah Hill's directorial debut is an instant classic that is daring, heartwarming, and a visual masterpiece. The film follows Stevie, a 13 year old boy, who is searching to belong. He finds his place in a group of neighbourhood skateboarders, and learns that the life he imagines they live is much different than it seems. Hill's writing skillfully ensures that there are no details unnecessary to the story, and that no strings are left untied. Perfectly capturing the essence of finding family, love, and brotherhood, Hill's debut feels raw and perfectly balanced throughout. There are moments to laugh, moments to cry, and moments to feel an overwhelming nostalgia and joy. Hill's writing is clearly influenced by his own experiences growing up as a skateboarder in the middle of the 90s. The soundtrack to this film is the best I have heard for 2018. Although this film is somewhat niche due to it's subject matter, there will be something for every movie lover to enjoy. The cast of this film feel real and perfectly portray the characters they represent. This film will rejuvenate your youth, reminding you of conversations you've had as a teen. Jonah Hill ignited the Toronto International Film Festival with an unexpected- yet incredible, first film. I was left stunned, and you will be too.
