F. Murray Abraham,
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

I do not understand any of the good reviews of this movie. I think that its' hook is the gimmick of the kids growing up in it. But there is nothing redeeming or even entertaining about this movie. It was terrible. The story bordered on depressing. The trailer leads one to believe that this is a documentary of a child's life, but it is not. There are actors in it. It was awful, just awful and I do hope it will not end up winning an Oscar. Surely someone could do a coming of age movie better, or a documentary set over 12 years better. I wish I could understand what the reasoning behind the good reviews, I watched the movie and I just cannot see it.
