On Friday, Feb. 13, 7:45 at Quadra Community centre, Friday Flicks presents the film BOYHOOD.
BOYHOOD 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. We experience his formative moments and the seemingly inconsequential ones. He finds his voice and wears his heart on his sleeve. This moving series of vignettes add up to a lifetime — or at least the beginnings of one.

It took Richard Linklater a painstaking twelve years to film the ultimate coming- of-age tale BOYHOOD. And it took film critics about twelve minutes to wipe their teary eyes and call it a masterpiece.... There has simply never been anything like this film.
