Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking site that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business.
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 cartoon which Mason was watching as a child was Dragon Ball Z. Specifically DBZ Season 8 The Majin Buu Saga. This particular season was not translated into English until 2001. See more »

You know how everyone's always saying seize the moment? I don't know, I'm kinda thinking it's the other way around. You know, like the moment seizes us.
Yeah. Yeah, I know. It's constant - -the moment. It's just... It's like it's always right now, you know?

No spoilers necessary because you already know what happens
Here's the bottom line. I think there should be an exception for these IMDb reviews; considering there's really nothing of absolute revelation or a spectacular "climax". Everything you thought of going on in an ordinary person's life that COULD happen, happens. That's it. Again, this isn't a spoiler. You already knew what happens in this movie before even seeing the trailers; trust me. You're not missing anything. Stay home and watch videos of your own family through the years. You'll be happy you did.
I will add that if Ethan Hawke wins the Oscar for Supporting Actor, I wouldn't have a problem with it. He did do a good job at the role.
