Frandi Peralta’s review published on Letterboxd:
A film that everyone has to watch at least one time in their life. The film tells the story of young Mason from ages 6 through 18 and his journey in life. I find this film to be a big inspiration in my life. Time goes by so fast, and we don't even realize it. Growing up is such a blessing, we all make mistakes as kids, and we learn from those mistakes. My favorites memories about growing up are those times when I was learning how to drive a motorcycle, cook, doing sleepovers with my friends, playing games like Legend of Zelda, Halo 3, and Minecraft. I can't believe that I'm already 19 years old, I graduated High School and that all my childhood friends are all in different countries. I believe most of the people, and that includes me, we don't appreciate growing up. Growing up is the best time of our lives when we can make mistakes and learn from them. I love re-watching this film, cause every time I do so many memories come back from when I was a kid. I also love to watch this film when I'm depressed and tired of life. This film always reminds me that our lives are beautiful and special. It took me multiple viewing to truly appreciate this film, and I'm happy I watch it cause it has changed my life.
