TUES­DAY BOY­HOOD

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

5.40PM, FOX­TEL MAS­TER­PIECE ★★★★

The com­ing-of-age movie? Been there, done that. The com­ing-of-life movie? Now, this is some­thing new. We join typ­i­cal Texas kid Ma­son (El­lar Coltrane) at the age of six, and bid him good­bye at 18, af­ter 12 years of pe­ri­odic film­ing. Noth­ing much hap­pens to the lad dur­ing this pe­riod, aside from life it­self. And, as or­gan­i­cally filmed by Richard Lin­klater, that turns out to be re­ally some­thing. A unique cin­e­matic ex­pe­ri­ence well worth the ef­fort. Co-stars Ethan Hawke, Pa­tri­cia

Ar­quette.
