Boyhood

Now Playing Synopsis: Filmed over the span of 12 years, Richard Linklater's childhood drama Boyhood allows viewers an intimate glimpse into the life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane), a young boy navigating the winding road to adulthood. As the years go by, Mason, his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater) and their parents (Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette) experience the ups and downs of family time while savoring the small yet defining moments that make each life unique. A nostalgia-fueled soundtrack featuring Coldplay and Arcade Fire takes the film back to innocent days when a song on the radio was all it took to sweep cares away. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater, Elijah Smith Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
