  • Boyhood

    Boyhood (2014)

    Rated R, 164 min. Directed by Richard Linklater. Starring Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke and Lorelei Linklater.

    Oscar Nods Night: With his newest release Boyhood, Richard Linklater has created the ultimate coming-of-age film, a true masterwork that transcends the usual constructs of the genre and delves into the development of personhood as it is experienced – day by day, year in and year out. By the very nature of its approach – Boyhood was filmed a few days at a time over 12 years – the film allows us to witness time’s effects on the boy of the title, Mason Jr. (Coltrane), as well as his family: mother Olivia (Arquette), father Mason Sr. (Hawke), and older sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater). From the get-go, we’re placed on a course to observe a child’s ongoing experience with making sense of the world he’s inherited. Boyhood's originality clearly extends beyond the screen, and it’s this film – even more so than Slacker or the Before trilogy – that will earn Linklater a place in the history books. Read a full review of Boyhood.
