The Film Society of Lincoln Center writes: "Jonah Hill’s directorial début is a frank, intimate, and emotionally layered reflection on an unlikely coming-of-age in the world of Nineties LA skate culture. 13-year-old Stevie (Sunny Suljic), growing up with a loving but largely absent mother (Katherine Waterston) and a resentful brother (Lucas Hedges), seeks refuge with older kids who hang out (and barely work) at a Los Angeles skate shop. The energy between Stevie and his crew, played by Ryder McLaughlin, Olan Prenatt, Gio Galicia, and Na-kel Smith, fuels a film that is at once lyrical, hilarious, terrifying, and just…real."

The Festival Director and Selection Committee Chair is Kent Jones. Dennis Lim, FSLC Director of Programming and Florence Almozini, FSLC Associate Director of Programming join Kent as the selection committee members.

The screening will take place on Sunday, October 7 at 8:30pm inside Alice Tully Hall.

The 2018 New York Film Festival runs through October 14.
