"Boyhood" is really annoying.
The characters played by Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Ellar Coltrane are annoying.
The plotline and scenes in the film by writer-director Richard Linklater are annoying.
And yet, or because, "Boyhood" is about as annoying as real life, the film is a must-see.
That's because, in comparison, you may conclude your life is less annoying than that depicted in "Boyhood."
"Boyhood" is this summer's feel-good movie in reverse.
