Stevie is 13, but looks a lot youn­ger. As always, it is sum­mer­ti­me in L.A. and Stevie is despe­ra­te to hang out with the big boys. At home his older brot­her tyran­ni­s­es him; his sin­gle mother is rare­ly the­re. When Stevie meets a group of cool dudes at the local skate­board shop, ever­y­thing chan­ges: the Ninja Turtles pos­ter is repla­ced by a pin-up girl, he beg­ins prac­ti­cing skate­boar­ding at night in front of the house and it is not long befo­re Stevie smo­kes his first cigarette.
Actor Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) has paid gre­at atten­ti­on to detail in order to resur­rect the 1990s for his direc­to­ri­al debut. His sto­ry of a teenager’s dif­fi­cult search for reco­gni­ti­on and the right fri­ends unfolds with gre­at ease and ple­nty of music. Replete with mix­tapes, VHS cam­cor­ders, Nintendo PlayStations and a good dose of nost­al­gia, Hill’s 16mm film takes us into the world of a boy who is test­ing his limits and is in dan­ger of gro­wing up too quick­ly. And on the sound­track, in addi­ti­on to film music sup­pli­ed by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and Atticus Ross, we are trea­ted to the songs of Nirvana, The Mamas & the Papas, Cypress Hill, Souls of Mischief and Seal.
