12 years in the making, “Boyhood” depicts coming-of-age like no other film

There’s a scene in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood in which a divorced father known only as Dad (Ethan Hawke) is spending the weekend with his two kids, Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), and trying to show them a good time. But no matter what he asks them — “How’s school?” “How’s your mom?” “How are things going?” — he can’t get anything out of them other than “Fine” or “Good” or a shrug.
