Favorite movie of the year. So raw and real. This is a must see.
In the end, Skate Kitchen is a frustrating film that’s supposed to elicit a heady sense of freedom, girl power and a rush of sisterhood. It doesn’t. Instead, one is left feeling vaguely hollow.
Less a coming-of-age film than a series of crucial episodes in that process, Skate Kitchen mixes dreaminess and disillusionment as it observes the choices Camille makes and the ensuing fallout.
Skate Kitchen is a funny and stirring saga of female empowerment that will no doubt delight young women who skate while inspiring many more to pick up a board. It also heralds Moselle as a director who can easily switch stance on both sides of the fiction/non-fiction divide.

Movie Info & Cast
Camille (Rachelle Vinberg) is an introverted Long Island teen whose passion for skateboarding paves the way for her to join a very particular in-crowd: a tight-knit, all-girl skateboarding crew in NYC called Skate Kitchen. In this “skate or die” new life, their friendship and camaraderie gives Camille a place to belong – and a place to escape to as her home life falls apart. Girls gotta stick together in the male-dominated world of skateboarding, after all. But will their support extend to Camille’s love life, when she falls for a mysterious skateboarder dude (played by Jaden Smith)?
An authentic & atmospheric teen tale, Skate Kitchen is the first narrative feature from writer/director Crystal Moselle, who previously helmed the award-winning documentary The Wolfpack.
