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. Written by

Because of all the positive hype, I hoped for at least a good film. I'm left wondering what it is I just don't get. So many good reviews? Even Mark Kermode says the young actor in the film has 'screen presence' and I think WTF! He's playing a boring so and so - he's not supposed to have presence.
I'm not sure if there's enough good stuff here even for 10 minutes - seriously. Certain things like Ethan Hawk showing an empty wallet caught my empathy for a moment but not enough to merit sitting through nearly 3 hours of this. I just don't understand how it won the golden globe for best film. Thankfully, there's a few negative reviews from like-minded people for me to know I've not gone completely mad!
