It was not too long after this very conversation with my wife that I saw on Twitter or some place Boyhood: Twelve Years on Film was now available to buy. An actual book. Now there’s an idea. And about a film-maker and movie I love. A movie I intend to watch and experience again very soon. Perfect. As I turned to inform my wife of this new arrival, I’m sure I could hear angels singing a Christmas carol.
So it apparently has more than two hundred photographs from the shooting of the movie – which covers twelve years don’t forget. Already I am salivating as if I can smell my turkey dinner is almost ready. With excerpts from the cast and the director too, this has Christmas present written all over it. I don’t need a computer. Besides, writing paper and pens are far cheaper. And with the money I save there I can pay the current website cut price of $33.50 (from $50.00), which equates to about £20.00. Oh, and shipping costs. Ah, that’s nothing. In actual currency. It’s a hell of a lot more valuable as a now must-own book.
Merry Christmas to me.
