Boyhood - Trailer
Director Richard LinklaterYear 2014Genre(s) Dramas
When Mason was an unwitting 6-year-old boy, he had no idea - like the rest of his peers - just how much of a rollercoaster his next ten years would be. Many of the problems he would experience throughout his journey through boyhood and adolescence would remain, but either intensify or weaken with age. For example, as a 6-year-old, living with his single mother and struggling to have a proper relationship with his absent father who is living in Alaska was an issue that he would struggle to comprehend completely until he was old enough to have romantic relationships himself and understand them. Other issues that would never fade in his adulthood quest include moving homes, making friends and having his heart broken, but in the end all of those tempestuous experiences would shape the man he would become at 18-years-old.
'Boyhood' is a uniquely produced drama that has filmed the same cast over a period of twelve years, convincingly capturing the changes that all young children go through to reach adulthood. It has been directed and written by the Oscar nominated Richard Linklater ('Before Midnight', 'A Scanner Darkly', 'School of Rock'), and has won three awards at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Louis Black/Lone Star Award at the SXSW Film Festival. It is due for UK cinematic release on July 11th 2014.
