Rotten Tomatoes says about Boyhood:

“Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before.”

Variety likes Boyhood for the best picture Oscar:

“Boyhood received a total of six Academy Award nominations on Thursday and, according to a new Variety poll, the Richard Linklater drama is the heavy favorite to win best picture.”

USA Today writes:

“Fresh off its Golden Globes wins for best drama, best director and supporting actress, Boyhood, the $4 million movie filmed over 12 years with the same cast, snagged director, picture, supporting actor and actress Oscar nominations, along with original screenplay and film editing. Boyhood earned six nods, as did American Sniper.”

New York Times critic Manohla Dargis gives Boyhood a hearty thumbs-up:

“Filmed over 12 consecutive years, “Boyhood” centers on Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who’s 6 when the story opens and 18 when it ends. In between, he goes to school; argues with his sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater, the director’s daughter); and watches his mother, Olivia (Patricia Arquette), struggle with work and men while paying the bills, moving from home to home and earning several degrees.”
