Boyhood directed by Richard Linklater and stars Ellar Coltrane as the son (Mason), Patricia Arquette the mother, Ethan Hawke the father and a couple of some unknown actors. The film is about a little boy, growing up experiencing adolescence and everything comes along with it. Yes we see that a lot of times before but this movie has something unique that no other family movie manage to make me feel like this. What makes this film incredibly special is the filmmaking technique. The filming began in the summer of 2002 with the young main character and filmed yearly all the way until last year with the same actors. So boyhood took 12 years to be done and we actually get to see through the eyes of Mason who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips, family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all that moments make me think my own childhood journey and i believe it's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about your family about your journey. I mean the massage of the film really hits you. While i was watching this film i was thinking abou the performances of the actors. They were outstanding. These performances do not feel like performances, they feel very much just in the moment, the dialogue doesn't feel like a movie dialogue, it just feel like people are talking. The real drama of this film comes from just how real it feels and the message behind it is just a series of milestones and once you hit them you are just on the next one. I'm sure that a lot of people are going to come out and say this movie isn't really that special and if it wasn't made over the course in 12 years well then it would be just some boring movie when nothing happens. I can understand that because nothing actually happened, it's a lot of really really interesting conversations between the actors and very very cool filmmaking techniques. Okay it's not that type of movie you are going to see again because is a very long movie, about 2 hours and 45 minutes and it's not the kind of movie that you poppin at a party and say hey guys we 're gonna watch this movie because is just not that type of film. Overall boyhood is a very very different and unique movie and i can't even imagine the idea of physically filming a movie for 12 years, that's crazy, definitely should be seen. So i'm gonna give boyhood 4 stars and if you guys saw this movie what did you think about it?
