Must-See Movie "Boyhood"

We recently watched this unique and fantastic movie. It was filmed over twelve years, using the same main cast and depicting the story of a boy's growth from the ages of six to eighteen, told through his eyes. What a brilliant idea to portray real-time growth, along with all the changes that come to life itself in such a time span.

Ellar Coltrane played Mason, the boy, in a totally relatable and tender performance. Patricia Arquette won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2015 for her part as the mom, with all the hair, weight and style changes that came with the passage of time. Ethan Hawke played a terrific dad.

Highly recommended.
