Boy­hood 165 min. r

TV Plus (South Africa) - - HOME ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
