As a teenager in the ’90s, Punky Brewster star Soleil Moon Frye carried a video camera everywhere she went. She documented hundreds of hours of footage… and then locked it away for over 20 years. After all this time, kid 90 unlocks the vault and presents a true time capsule of a group of friends growing up in Hollywood and New York City in the ’90s, balancing childhood and fame before the advent of the internet and social media. The documentary film is a coming-of-age story that shows Frye and her lifelong friends and fellow child stars—including David Arquette, Stephen Dorff, Balthazar Getty, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Brian Austin Green, Tori Leonard, and more—sharing memories and reflections.
