No other movie like it. Growing up around the same time as the protagonist really hit me in the nostalgia, couldn't take my eyes off it
this film felt personal and something to remember ♡
A slow film that shows progression and life. The 13 year filming is such an interesting note, and it's a beautiful experience.
A cinematic achievement - Linklater films his cast over the course of 12 years, adjusting the story accordingly. Ethan Hawke shines
The whole film feels so real and authentic. It's a wonderful emotional journey about a family growing up. It's already a classic in my eyes.
I felt like I lived with these characters. It's a journey. Very well directed, this is such an original idea. The years of work paid off!
Best film about growing up because characters are actually growing up. 12 years to make masterpiece about boyhood.
Perfectly captures the feelings and challenges of growing up.
Great acting and one of the most creative movies of the decade.
A beautifully crafted meditation on growing up which will stay with you
