Dave read about this new movie, Boyhood, during the show. It was shot over a 12 year timeframe and it's really, really good. The patience it had to take to make the film is pretty amazing and I'm not sure if it's watching the kid age in the trailer or the acoustic rock but I could feel myself getting emotional.
A summary of the stories plot reads like many of my friends childhood.
Filmed over 12 consecutive years, “Boyhood” centers on Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who’s 6 when the story opens and 18 when it ends. In between, he goes to school; argues with his sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater, the director’s daughter); and watches his mother, Olivia (Patricia Arquette), struggle with work and men while paying the bills, moving from home to home and earning several degrees. Every so often, her ex-husband, Mason Sr. (Ethan Hawke), roars into the children’s lives, initially in a 1968 GTO. It isn’t a dad car (although it does belong to one: Mr. Linklater).
