How can I introduce Boyhood? I could compare it to other films, or think of a witty introductory comment. But when it comes to Boyhood, this is unnecessary. It is incomparable.
Every year at the Oscars we make our predictions to whom will win the awards. This year I had all my money on Boyhood to win Best Picture. It felt obvious to me that this was the clear winner. But as Sean Penn read out the result, I let out a shocked “what?” and perhaps a swear word or two.
