Ever watched a movie that left you in awe for several hours after you finished it? Boyhood is that kind of movie for me. I remember when I first caught a glimpse of its trailer at the cinema and found out that it was shot over 12 years so that the audience gets to see how the characters aged naturally. That was what piqued my interest. 12 years? To shoot one film? I had never heard of such a project but quickly made a mental note to see it as soon as it came out. And see it I did.
