'Boyhood' poster

Extended 'til September 4: Boyhood

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood is a 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.

Directed by Richard Linklater
