Boyhood is not a drama, not a family piece, it's just multiple excerpts from the life of a boy, nothing fancy, just well told. There are no artificial plot pieces, the scenario doesn't follow a story model, the acting is superb, and the unfolding events are captivating even if they don't have an overall cohesive narrative track. It's one of those movie where you keep waiting for "it" and "it" never shows up. The end will leave you with a smile.
A must for everyone, unless you need action.
