RICHARD LINKLATER

b. July 30, 1960



Boyhood, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke




Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.





Film tourné sur 12 ans avec les mêmes acteurs qui retrace l'histoire d'une famille à travers le point de vue d'un jeune garçon qui grandit sur l'écran devant nos yeux.
Ethan Hawke et Richard Linklater se connaissent bien, puisqu'ils ont travaillé ensemble (avec Julie Delpy) sur la trilogie des Before, un projet également hors-norme suivant le parcours amoureux d'un homme et d'une femme sur près de 20 ans.
Boyhood a remporté l'Ours d'Argent du Meilleur réalisateur à la Berlinale 2014.

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
