The film tells the story of the life of Mason Evans Jr. (Ellar Coltrane), from the age of eight to the age of twenty, describing his relationship with divorce parents, removals, new schools, the failed marriages of his mother (Patricia Arquette), the troubled relationship with his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), the new family of his father (Ethan Hawke), and the cultural, social and political changes in years. 


Boyhood or "The Twelve-Year Project" is outstanding. Linklater has assemble the same crew and the same cast every year for 12 years to film some scenes, in order to follow the growth of the characters with the actors'.
The film (165 minutes) is smooth, never boring and has no special effects. It’s useless to mention the cleverness of the two young actors, of the director and of the Arquette-Hawke duo.


You know how everyone's always saying seize the moment? I don't know, I'm kind of thinking it’s the other way around, you know, like the moment seizes us.

I just feel like there are so many things that I could be doing and probably want to be doing that I'm just not.
