This movie started filming in 2001 and finished in 2013 which means you actually see the lead character grow up on screen. Also notable is that there was never a real script for this just focal points the director wanted to include in the story. Also each lead actor was given the chance to add things to the script either in their life or something important they wanted in the movie. You see various stages of his life leading to the point of college and leaving the nest. The parents are divorced early on and you see what he goes through during that time leading to high school and his first heartbreak. However also leading to the moment of new beginnings. As the movie progresses you hear early 2000’s music playing in the background as well what trends were happening at that time leading to a more present time towards the end. This is a great film that everyone can relate to in some type of way. Do not expect suspense or theatrics like most films, instead find a more real story you can relate to in some type of way. Not every scene will be like your life but there will be more than one scene everyone can relate to.
