This is the best film I have seen in a very long time and I highly recommend seeing it on the big screen or at home. This movie was filmed over 12 years with the same cast and it is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason played by Ellar Coltrane, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. The film is very well made and executed and it is one of the best coming-of-age story I have seen. The film is mesmerizing, heartbreaking, exhilarating, and I left the theater in a state of complete happiness. Overall, I urge you to see this wonderful film, you will be very happy if you do.
