    Boyhood

    Anyone else interested in this film? It sounds really good IMO and based on what I am reading could be the best movie in many years. On the surface it sounds like a snoozer but I am awfully curious about it now. To me it looks like it could be absolutely great!

    Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

    That's pretty cool it was filmed over 12 years,but at the same time it doesn't look that interesting.

    Yeah. Nothing about this peaks my curiosity. I grew up once and can't tell what would be so enticing to watch him grow up as well.

    Maybe it's a parent thing

    Years ago I wouldn't have even watched the trailer. Now I actually want to see this! Go figure

    That's a download. I feel like the only thing it has going for it was it was filmed over so many years. But I'll definitely give it a shot.

    The movie is getting perfect scores. Even if it isn't subject matter or piquing your particular interest you have to applaud the dedication and professionalism that apparently went into making this film.

    39 reviews in on RT, currently 100%! If you read them most are 5/5 or 10/10 scores!

    I'm not going to run to see it but I will definitely be watching this.

    Just came back from seeing this film...10/10

    Brilliant in every way.

    Ellar Coltrane 's performance is flat out amazing.

    I caught this a while back. Good movie, but overrated, in my opinion. Aside from the fact that it was filmed over a span of many years, it's a pretty standard family drama. 7/10

    I would say this film is a little outside the standard family drama.

    I heard this woman telling her husband as we were leaving the theatre, "It was like one really long soap opera."
