Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is a groundbreaking story that sees two young children grow up on-screen. Brought together each year to shoot just a handful of scenes, the movie watches a family evolve as its two children move through childhood to adolescence to becoming young adults. The film stars Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and newcomers Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater, with a soundtrack that equally spans the years. Boyhood hits theatres July 11th.
