Boyhood is mesmerizing

5 second plot: We get a sneak peek in the life of Mason (and his family) from age 5 to 18. It's basically everyday life. The special thing about this movie is that we are always looking at the same actors. The movie was shot over 12 years so the actors really age with it.

5 second review: When you're watching this movie, you just know you're watching something special. It's a beautiful story that will mesmerize a lot of people. It's a bit slow from time to time but if you look around, there's always something going on. It's good that there's not too much explanation about which time we are in; we're given just enough hints to know where we're at.

IMDb score: 8,7/10
