Boyhood

  • Starring: Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette
  • Director: Richard Linklater
  • Genre(s): Drama
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 165 min.

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before and is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.

"Boyhood is not just a great movie, it's a landmark achievement in film."
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"One of the most extraordinary films in decades, this family drama is also one of the most ambitious in scope, having taken more than a decade to shoot. Yet it comes across as effortless and unassuming. Boyhood is an epic masterpiece that seems wholly unconcerned with trying to be one."
- Claudia Puig, USA Today
"As a film that dares to honor small moments and the life they add up to, Boyhood isn’t just a masterpiece. It’s a miracle."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Extraordinary in form, ‘ordinary’ in content, Boyhood is ambitious, intimate and unforgettable. It might just be the apex of Linklater’s life’s work."
- Matt Glasby, Total Film
"Is it dumb to say, "Wow?"...I don't care. Wow."
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Once in a great while I see a movie I know I’ll be listing as one of my all-time favorites for the rest of my days. So it is with this remarkable, unforgettable, elegant epic that is about one family — and millions of families. It’s a pinpoint-specific and yet universal story."
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"Epic in scope yet unassuming throughout, Linklater's incredibly involving chronicle marks an unprecedented achievement in fictional storytelling."
- Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"Warm, soulful, funny and quietly insightful, Boyhood shines in its engrossing, experiential understanding and it’s a special achievement that should be cherished and acknowledged."
- Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
"Perhaps never has the long arc of the journey from childhood to college been portrayed as cohesively and convincingly as Richard Linklater has done in a film that can be plain on a moment-to-moment basis but is something quite special in its entirety."
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
"I'm as reluctant to stop writing about this movie as I was to stop watching it: At 166 minutes, it flies by, and you don't want to leave that world. But one thing is certain: This isn't the last word. People will be writing about this film for years - and looking at it to discover the lost history of our time."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Linklater’s newest film, a true masterwork, eschews this big-bang theory of dramatics in favor of the million-and-one little things that accumulate daily and help shape who we are, and who we will become."
- Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
