Boyhood (Richard Linklater)

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, this is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes.

Starring: Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Elijah Smith, Lorelei Linklater, Libby Villari, Ethan Hawke, Marco Perella, Jamie Howard

My thoughts on this film: What makes this movie so unique and touching is its deep humanity. Although it is a fictional piece, you cannot help but relate to the actors as if you were watching a documentary. Every scene feels like real life.
The actors deliver an outstanding performance - there are so many scenes where you feel unbelievably close to them - and the dialogues seem completely natural.
I would not give this an Oscar considering other nominated movies, but it is definitely worth of a nomination!
