I just watched our Boyhood screener.
1) Having grown up in Central Texas like the main character for most of the movie, it made the whole thing just a little extra special and relateable to me (even though, to be honest, I was a relatively good kid with a pretty stable family life. But still, Texas childhood/teenage life. I get it.)
2) Oh my gosh, my own kids are going to grow up so stinkin fast. I was just a kid myself, going through all the awkward growing up experiences. And here I am on the other side as a parent myself now. My parents were just me and now I am them. Time is so unfair.
3) I’m two drinks in right now. This may be why I’m being overly sentimental.
Can we have a Boyhood 2 now? That covers the 20s-early 30s please?
Either way, Boyhood is great. Go see it.
