Watch: Featurette for Richard Linklater's 12-Year Project 'Boyhood'
The release of Richard Linklater's 12-year passion project Boyhood is just under two weeks away, and audiences everywhere need to go out of their way to see the film that is not only a remarkable cinematic achievement, but also a beautiful coming-of-age tale. Now a new featurette on the original and unique film has surfaced, featuring Linklater talking about the inception of the project along with stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette. Much of the talk is about the unorthodox production, shooting a few scenes every year for 12 years, and how amazing it was to reunite as Ellar Coltrane aged before their eyes. Watch now!
Here's the featurette for Richard Linklater's Boyhood from IFC Films:
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.

Linklater is fantastic at using the passage of time to his advantage in his film making. The Before set of films are a treasure to cinema. I believe that this film may very well be one of those that stand up through time.
