a very ambitious project

I’ve always been interested in the thought of creating a movie that chronicles someone growing up over the course of several years. Boyhood  is here to make that idea come to life. Over a period of eleven years, Richard Linklater has documented the fictional Mason Evans Jr. and his life from a young child to a young man ready to leave for college. It was a very ambitious project which seems to have paid off; it’s a critic darling and a commercial success.
I’ll be watching it with the English class soon and I’m quite excited. Sadly, I haven’t been able to watch many new films this year and I would like to have opinions on the movies nominated for the Oscars before the Oscars actually happen (this one is obviously going to have at least a few nominations – Linklater is a sure bet).
