First Trailer Unveiled For Jonah Hill Directorial Debut ‘Mid90s’ | Film Trailer
Jonah Hill is ready for the big jump. As many others before him, the actor has decided to try his luck behind the camera, and he has just released the first trailer for his debut film Mid 90s.
The plot of the movie follows Stevie, a young teenager who, growing up in Los Angeles, he’s struggling with his family, including his co-dependent single mom and his abusive older brother, and at school, where his richer friends seem to overlook him. When Stevie befriends a crew of skateboarders, he learns some tough lessons about class, race, and privilege.
I’m honestly not sure about this one. The 90s’ were certainly fast changing years. With technology taking its toll on society, people were as lost as they were in the trademark year 1968. I can see how Hill is trying to pull a coming of age story out of the skate underground scene, aiming for that grunge, hippie vibe, but it remains to be seen if the execution will live up to the expectations.
Many actors are tempted to pass behind the camera, confident that what they can say in front of it can easily be translated behind the scene. Jonah Hill, who has definitely paid his dues as an actor, has taken seriously his directional debut and he is looking for the ultimate step in the filmmaking process.
Let’s hope, then, that Mid90s will provide just that for Hill, as Argo was for Ben Affleck. Starring young newcomer Sunny Suljic as Stevie and Oscar nominated actor Lucas Hedges in a supporting role, the film is scheduled to be released on October 19, hinting at a possible Award season run.
