Every once in a while somebody comes up with an amazing, unique idea for a movie. Richard Linklater designed such an effort by filming the story of a child’s broken home life for 12 consecutive years. The crew and cast signed on for the duration. Continuity in actors and technical aspects assist in the tale of a family just trying to heal and grow up. Whether it’s from a parent’s or child’s path, most can find themselves in this film. “Boyhood” is a movie many of us lived.

I met Bob Hite when he, and Tom “Ukulele Man” Harker, played music on a live TV show I directed in 1998. We both ran across each other at Tom’s memorial service last year. Ty knew him as a brother in Tom’s “Prodigal Sons”. Bob chose the intensely personal “Boyhood” when asked to interview with us. I came to this discussion from the boy’s perspective; Bob came at it from the father’s. This is a Moving Music invitation to peek in and listen to how this film affected us both.
