What an interesting movie. I really enjoyed watching this young boy navigate life from the age of 6 to 18. The story telling is really good with a few slow parts but that could be because the movie is so long that I needed a break in the middle. At 2 hours and 45 minutes, I do advise treating yourself to an intermission otherwise you might give up on the film half way through.
I find it really interesting that this film was filmed over a 12 year period. I loved seeing how Mason and Samantha grew with each new time period and felt so bad for the string of bad relationships that Patricia Arquette's character found herself in.
I like the ending message of the film; that moments seize us. I like to think Mason has a great future ahead of him and will be happy someday.
Boyhood won a Golden Globe for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress.
