A labour of love for Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise/Sunset), who filmed it off and on for 12 years, the extraordinary Boyhood follows 7-year-old Mason (Ellar Coltrane) from a boy to a teenager whose voice cracks, and whose heart gets broken. Meanwhile his mother (Patricia Arquette) survives bad marriages to become a teacher and his deadbeat dad (Ethan Hawke) straightens himself out… while in the background, the broader arc of history is at work as elections are won, smoking banned, and technology advances. An essential cinematic document from an exploratory filmmaker interested in capturing the slow-burn of life on screen.
