Stevie (Suljic) is a 13-year-old whose brother beats him up, and in an escape from his domestic woes he starts hanging out with an older crew of skaters. Hill’s debut feature shows plenty of creative daring and is pleasingly non-judgmental, a witty and compassionate portrait of adolescence.
Stevie is a thirteen-year-old living in Los Angeles in the 1990s. This film follows him as he spends his summer navigating between a troubled home life and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop.
