Boyhood is quite an extraordinary movie : it was shot over 12 years, one bit each summer. The main idea is that the central character, and his family, can be watched growing up, and growing old, and the actors are the same from the beginning to the end of the movie. It lasts 2h45, which is long, but doesn’t feel so long… I loved watching it ! I’m sure you would too. It’s a very interesting piece of fiction, which captures bits of real life in it.
