When a new generation of kids discovers that the world is full of bad people, they can’t help but wonder if the best way to avoid them is to simply grow up to be worse.
As one parent has to choose between a child who needs to be protected and a kid who wants to become the best version of himself, we take a look at the making of Boyhood, which tells the story of a boy who, when asked to create a new character, makes the wrong choice, and then faces a series of choices that could affect the life of the world.
The trailer is pretty well-received, and the movie’s opening moments are especially entertaining, but the actual movie itself is a little less than riveting.
There’s not much of an overall plot, and a few key characters don’t quite make the most of their roles, but for the most part, the film is pretty forgettable.
It’s a shame, because it’s a fascinating movie about a young man trying to be better than the bad guys he encountered in his life.
Boyhood is also the first film that I’ve seen that really works to introduce a new cast of characters.
The film’s ensemble is a bit of a mixed bag, and they’re often in very different places on the spectrum of maturity.
One is a young boy who is, by his own admission, just not up to par with the rest of the kids in his class.
A girl, meanwhile, is a genius who is very interested in things and is fascinated by science.
The boys, however, are not the only ones who are more than just average.
The rest of them have their own unique abilities and flaws that are more or less revealed in the movie.
This isn’t a perfect movie, but it’s still worth watching if you’re interested in the development of a character like this.
In the end, it’s not really that much of a surprise that Boyhood fails to hit its mark, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less worthwhile.
There are some great moments in the film, and I wish that more of the story would be told in an accessible way, but this movie is just not all that good.
If you’re looking for a story that’s easy to get caught up in, then you’ll definitely want to give Boyhood a shot.
