ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Acclaimed, Academy Award nominated director Richard Linklater crafts a 12-year epic that follows the life of a young boy, Mason, from early childhood to his arrival at college. Nothing short of a cinematic miracle, this breathless, intimate and sprawling tale shines light on life's small moments, and won the hearts of both critics and audiences, earning Patricia Arquette an Academy Award, and receiving the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture (Drama). Rated an impeccable 97% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, the Washington Post raves, "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."
