Richard Linklater’s Boyhood gets a trailer

‘Before trilogy’ writer/director Richard Linklater débuts ambitious new project.

Boyhood

Richard Linklater’s Boyhood has a new trailer ahead of its release on July 11th. The film is a fictional drama made with the same group of actors over a 12-year period from 2002-2013. It charts a unique journey, through the exhilaration of childhood, the seismic shifts of a modern family and the very passage of time.

The film tracks 6 year-old Mason (Ellar Coltrane) over life’s most radically fluctuating decade, through a familiar whirl of family moves, family controversies, faltering marriages, re-marriages, new schools, first loves, lost loves, good times, scary times and a constantly unfolding mix of heartbreak and wonder. But the results are unpredictable, as one moment braids into the next, entwining into a deeply personal experience of the incidents that shape us as we grow up and the ever-changing nature of our lives.

As the story begins, dreamy-eyed grade-schooler Mason faces upheaval: his devoted, struggling single mum Olivia (Patricia Arquette) has decided to move him and older sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater) to Houston – just as their long-absent father Mason Sr. (Ethan Hawke) returns from Alaska to re-enter their world. Thus begins life’s non-stop flux. Yet through a tide of parents and step-parents, girls, teachers and bosses, dangers, yearnings and creative passions, Mason emerges to head down his own road.
