BOYHOOD (15)

WHO’S IN IT?

Ethan Hawke (Training Day), Patricia Arquette (Ed Wood), Ellar Coltrane (Fast Food Nation), Lorelei Linklater (Waking Life), Nick Krause (The Descendants), Tamara Jolaine (The Tree of Life), Evie Thompson (2 Guns), Shane Graham (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl)

WHO’S BEHIND THE CAMERA?

Richard Linklater (Before Midnight), director, writer, producer; Jonathan Sehring (Boys Don’t Cry), John Sloss (I’m Not There.) and Cathleen Sutherland (film debut), producers; Lee Daniel (Dazed and Confused) and Shane F. Kelly (A Scanner Darkly), cinematographers; Sandra Adair (School of Rock), editor

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A divorced couple, Mason (Hawke) and Olivia (Arquette), try to raise their son, Mason Jr (Coltrane). We follow the life of the boy for twelve years, from his first days at grade school to his late teens, and examine his relationship with his parents as he grows…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Director Richard Linklater has done something extraordinary and unique with Boyhood – filming with the exact same cast for twelve years, he has allowed us as an audience to watch young actor Ellar Coltrane grow up right before our very eyes – and it truly is fascinating.
