Boyhood 165 min. r
a young boy named mason gives us a first-hand view of what it’s like for a boy to grow up from the age of five to 18. there’s everything from going to school for the first time and sharing family holidays, to falling in love and discovering that life isn’t as easy as everyone makes it sound. Why it’s hot: it was filmed over 12 years – literally. the production team got the crew together for a couple of weeks every year between 2002 and 2013 and it’s interesting to see how the cast have changed over the years. the script is top class, the actors are brilliant in their roles, and it’s a proper coming-of-age film.
