Stevie is a sweet 13-year-old about to explode. His mom is loving and attentive, but a little too forthcoming about her romantic life. His big brother is a taciturn and violent bully. So Stevie searches his working-class Los Angeles suburb for somewhere to belong. He finds it at the Motor Avenue skate shop.
"Relatable" is a word that I see bandied about as praise of various mediums. Well let me tell you, _Mid90s_ was relatable, and it made me very uncomfortable. I like Slice of Life stuff, and I **love** Coming of Age movies, but I guess _Mid90s_ was not what I needed today. That said, it set out to do a particular thing and it totally did it. And well, you gotta respect that.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
