Boyhood follows the life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane) as he grows from a child to a man. But this is not a documentary! Instead it is a fictitious story about a family (his parents are played by Patricia Arquettea and Ethan Hawke) that took 12 years to shoot -- and allowed all of the characters to age naturally.
