Boyhood

Drama


 

A ground-breaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a boy named Mason who grows up on screen before our eyes.

"Boyhood" is an epic cinematic feat, filmed over 12 years with a viewing time spanning a few hours. For all of its sweeping scope, this movie is about the small episodes that make up an ordinary life as it is lived. There's no big plot or narrative, the everyday can be unremarkable, the tone easy going and understated. A lot of ground is covered, and watching is memorable for the emotional intimacy achieved on screen. All boy no hoody.
