Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD Trailer

  • Save
The first trailer for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood has been released, and although it does well in showing off the fact that this movie was shot over the span of twelve years, it’s still something that needs to be seen to really feel the impact.  While I wasn’t very impressed with the actual story, I marveled at the scope of this film.  It truly is one of a kind and a must-see.

The film stars Ellar Coltrane, Ethan HawkePatricia Arquette and Lorelei Linklater, and is opening in theaters July 11th.  Click here to read our full review from Sundance 2014 and hit the break to check out the trailer and synopsis.



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 (a breakthrough performance by 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. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
