Synopsis

Shot over 12 years, this epic but laidback and poignant film from US indie directing legend Richard Linklater follows a boy from Austin as he grows from childhood to college age, quietly rebelling against rules to find his own path and sense of self. Mason copes with some friction at home as his mother, who is studying for a Masters, moves the family in with a stern disciplinarian with an alcohol problem - a big change from Mason’s relaxed but irresponsibly slack dad. The changes over time in not only the cast but the era around them, its music and other atmospheric memory triggers are wonderfully captured in this acclaimed drama.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
