See this movie. Once you get past the totally cool concept of Linklater filming this movie over the course of 12 years so that everyone in the movie ages and grows up right before your eyes, it's a really great story. Especially If you are like me and like to cry at movies. There is part in there where the mom, Patricia Arquette really nails motherhood home. It's long, so get a large popcorn and lots of ice in your big soda. And bring tissues.
