Boyhood: The First Movie Filmed Over 12 Years

A super interesting concept – this movie uses the same cast over 12 years to convey the universal act of growing up. It was written and directed by Richard Linklater who brought you Dazed and Confused, Waking Life, A Scanner Darkly, School of Rock, and Before Sunrise and its sequels.

While the cast and Linklater are all very qualified, I’m still skeptical about the film. This could either be super interesting and touching or just another movie about white people by white people. It’s not likely that every person in the world could “universally” relate to the experience of this specific family due to socioeconomic and racial differences. However, I don’t want to speak too soon. I’ll certainly go see it!

What do you think?

P.s.

If you’re in the NYC area, you can go see Boyhood at BAM with an intro by Linklater and the star, Ellar Coltrane in person on July 10 & 12th. Details here>>

“Following two sold-out screenings on opening night of BAMcinemaFest, Richard Linklater’s ambitious coming-of-age epic Boyhood returns to the BAM Harvey Theater for its premiere theatrical run. See this groundbreaking family portrait at the film’s exclusive Brooklyn venue.”
