In 2002, Richard Linklater cast a 6-year-old boy to play the central figure of a film he intended to work on for 12 years. Boyhood follows Mason and his family through divorce and relocation, arguments and reconciliation, discoveries and routine: the daily life of an ordinary family condensed into one very powerful film.
"As a film that dares to honor small moments and the life they add up to, "Boyhood" isn't just a masterpiece. It's a miracle." Washington Post
