Circa 1969, several strangers, most with a secret to bury, meet by chance at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one night, everyone will show their true colors - before everything goes to hell.
This movie follows a teenager named Stevie 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.Written by
No real plot or storyline, this movie is almost more of an attack on skateboarding culture and lifestyle.
There's nothing here in the way of storyline so you're forced to endure Jonah Hills outsider view of what it is to be part of a skate crew. Cliche'd and just straight lame. They even tried to add in a "skate vid" they'd made which had no skating. This is a movie you'd expect from someone with zero experience in film and tv, plotless and without any story. Skateboarding isn't just degenerates getting drunk and acting like morons. It's a lifestyle that is filled with artists and dedicated athletes, it is a genuine blend of art and athletics, this movie is a disservice to skate culture and film.
