Continuing to knock out the Oscar nominated films, Sharon, Jack and I watched Boyhood as an HD rental on the AppleTV.

The film was directed by Richard Linklater and starred Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke. It was shot intermittently over a 12-year period from May 2002 to October 2013 and shows the growth of a young boy and his older sister to adulthood.

Boyhood received six Oscar nominations, including: Best Picture; Supporting Actor for Hawke; Supporting Actress for Arquette; Directing for Linklater; Film Editing; and, Original Screenplay.

Sharon noted that the story seemed very much like everyday life. I enjoyed the film. It is an amazing accomplishment to keep the cast together and moving forward over a twelve year period. While Boyhood may be a legitimate candidate for best picture and director, I don't see Arquette and Hawke winning for supporting actor and actress.
