When Louis Bloom, a driven man desperate for work, muscles into the world of L.A. crime journalism, he blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story. Aiding him in his effort is Nina, a TV-news veteran.
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
The baseball game that Dad brings Mason and Samantha to is a combination of two different Brewers / Astros contests filmed eight months apart. The footage of Roger Clemens is from a game held on August 18, 2005. The game that Dad, Mason and Samantha actually attended was filmed on April 17, 2006, when The Astros' Jason Lane actually did hit a home run precisely where the camera was pointing. See more »

You know how everyone's always saying seize the moment? I don't know, I'm kind of thinking it's the other way around, you know, like the moment seizes us.

I'm going to start off by saying that this is the first movie or show that I have ever reviewed, and I have watched a lot of them. "Boyhood" seemed like a great concept to me and the trailer looked interesting enough to give it a shot, but what really made me go to see it were all of these reviews calling it a "masterpiece".
This may have been one of the WORST movies I have ever seen.
If sitting in a chair and watching absolutely nothing happen for 2 hours and 45 minutes is something that sounds appealing to you then I highly recommend this film. I honestly have no idea how someone could even call this a good movie, let alone a "masterpiece" or a "once and a lifetime experience". I'm legitimately angry that I watched this movie.
