"Mesmerizing … Linklater has redefined the coming-of-age story for the 21st century." – New York Observer

Richard Linklater has built a reputation on his often unorthodox approach to filmmaking and with Boyhood he takes that approach to new heights, charting the development of a boy, Mason, between the ages of six and 18, and filmed over 12 years as the actor, Ellar Coltrane, himself grew up.

It's an unprecedented undertaking, begun in 2002 and returned to periodically over the years. Actors Ethan Hawke (Predestination, MIFF 2014) and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents, and Linklater's daughter Lorelei as Mason's sister, also grow older naturally, in sync with their characters, creating both a unique coming-of-age tale and a revealing, deeply moving study of ageing.

Shooting on 35mm, Linklater has produced a funny, nostalgic, bracingly honest work, for which he was awarded the Silver Bear for Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival.

"What an astonishing achievement; what a beautiful movie." – The Guardian
