It is not only a “boyhood” story, but also a story about the growth of mother, father, man and women.
In this movie, there are not much coincidence, happy ending, or eternity love story. But it is reality. The director is telling what he learned from his life.
There twice times when Mason’s dad playing and singing, the first time with Jimi, and second with his new wife and his two kids. The Two Songs really touched me。
“The teacher told me my son picts pictures the family,
all the blue.
She said she got he whisper in the window,
oh, dady please come home.
I know I can call him up,
what if his mother hears the phone.”
“I want you easy and casual, but still demand my stay,
I want you to know me completely, but still remain mysterious.
Consider every things deeply, but still remain fearless.”
For some thinking about education, I think we can do more in the high school than what we have done now. No longer put the most precious time on useless, repetitive and tiresome, so called, grade. In high school, we did not think about what we really like and what kind of person we want to be, and we are even not allowed to have love affairs. it comes the result that we should learn these in our college and even more.
