Boyhood

Following an impressive and acclaimed premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, director Richard Linklater is bringing his 11-year long project Boyhood to theaters this summer. And while we're still waiting for the first trailer to show up, some new photos form the coming-of-age epic have arrived, showing off young Ellar Coltrane as he grows up from a young boy to a teenager. The film follows Mason (Coltrane) from age six to eighteen as he deals with the trials and tribulations of divorced parents, girls, disappointing authority figures and more. But it's not a greatest hits collection of boyhood as much as a raw look at growing up. Besides seeing Coltrane grow, it's also cool to see Ethan Hawke age over the years. Look!

Here are the new photos from Richard Linklater's Boyhood (via The Playlist):

Filmed from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his older sister, Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), learn to face the realities of growing up, while their divorced parents cope with the ongoing challenges of parenting in an ever-evolving landscape. Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, Before Sunrise, Bernie) directs the film, using the same actors, including Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as the Mason's parents, over 11 years of production. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and IFC Films will release it in limited theaters July 11th.
