FSJ Film Society presents “Boyhood”

By on October 17, 2014

Our next film; Boyhood, promises to showcase an interesting balance of the realities of growing up in today’s age, along with the dedication it took to film this 12 year in the making, work of art. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, Boyhood has received nothing but rave reviews since its release this August, no doubt, because of the wide range of appeals this film holds. From the specifically selected soundtrack of modern rock that has progressed with the film, to the intimate family moments that every parent can relate to. This film will hold something for everyone.

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, this film is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. This drama charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. The film is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
