2.05PM, 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 and Patricia Arquette.
