We cannot recommend this highly enough. Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a ground-breaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a kid called Mason (a stellar performance by Ellar Coltrane), who grows up on screen before our eyes. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette play Mason's parents and Lorelei Linklater is Mason's sister Samantha. The film 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.
BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
