About the Movie

Ashley Greene (Twilight Saga) and Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) co-star in this powerful coming-of-age drama that took the film festival circuit by storm. For Ritchie Wheeler (Fernandez), a carefree teenager growing up in a small Texas town, Skateland is more than just a local roller's a fading symbol of friendship and good times. Now, everything's changing and the only thing Ritchie can hang on to is his budding romance with the sweet and beautiful Michelle (Greene). But one fateful night will force Ritchie to face the future and make the most important decision of his life.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Anthony Burns's sweetly nostalgic re-creation of small-town Texas in the early 1980s. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, May 12, 2011

Rotten: Skateland is every coming-of-age-after-high-school movie you've ever seen with a formulaic plot and well-worn characters. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, May 12, 2011

Rotten: Fernandez looks like a young Joaquin Phoenix, and everything else here is off-brand familiar. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, May 11, 2011

Rotten: Though noticeably lacking in originality, Anthony Burns' low-key directorial debut skates by on the charms of its hazy wistfulness and a likable cast. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, May 13, 2011

Wonderful film!

I have been wanting to watch this film for quite some time... I am glad that I got to watch it and that I chose to rent rather than listening to the tomatometer. Thats why I am writing this! I felt like all of the characters were real. I really connected with the film and I think many people will be able to as well. The film was really about change and kind of the things that happen in life. The main character Richie goes through a series of hardship and is trying to figure out what to do with his life. I recommend this film for anyone who is feeling lost in life. Perhaps unsure or scared on what to do with the rest of your life or looking for a film that will touch your heart. Its a sad film but luckily it is also happy! I hope this was helpful and that you may enjoy the film!

I grew up at a "Skateland"

I grew up at a "Skateland" and the idea of a movie about a skating rink was just......Well I had to see it. I really enjoyed this movie though it was a bit sad. I will also say there is not much skating in it. Some of it was filmed in hawaii any "Lostie" will recognize the location.


This movie is absolutely great!! I love it soooo much!!
