SXSW Review: Linklater's 'Boyhood' a Slice of American Pie as We've Never Tasted Before

Sometimes you want to say, simply, go see this movie, and leave it at that. Richard Linklater's "Boyhood," which debuted at Sundance and won two Berlinale prizes, is such a film. Now headed for SXSW, it's ingenious: Shot over the course of 12 years using the same actors -- Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the estranged and then divorced parents of a girl, Samantha (Linklater's own daughter Lorelei), and the eponymous boy, Mason (Ellar Coltrane) -- "Boyhood" follows the family through many ups and downs.
