We went to see the film Boyhood tonight and it was excellent. It's from Richard Linklater and it follows this single mom and her two kids from when they were little to college. The gimmick is it was filmed over 12 years with the same cast and crew, so you see this kid go from 6 to 18 and it's pretty surreal. I love most of his movies (dazed & confused, before sunrise, waking life, etc), so I was on board with the style, lots people just sitting around bullshitting. But the "filmed over 12 years" is a fucking trip and something you just gotta see.
