This movie is built around a gimmick - it's the story of a boy growing up, filmed in "real time" over 12 years. The same actor plays the main character from ages 6 to 18. The director, Richard Linklater, reassembled the actors every few years.

But the gimmick is the least important thing about it. There's more genuine realism and believability in the film than in any other I can remember. It breaks every rule and cliche of story-telling, without ever dissolving into the kind of unwatchable mess you might expect from that tack. Definitely worth watching.
