Shot over the course of 12 years, Richard Linklater’s experimental drama brings a whole new meaning to the coming-of-age conceit. Not so much a story as much as it is a collection of telling scenes, the film trails Mason, played by Ellar Coltrane, from boyhood to college-age adolescence. Patricia Arquette won an Academy Award for her supporting role as Mason’s mother.
