Boyhood

Now Playing Synopsis: Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a coming-of-age drama that the director spent twelve years making.

The film's story simply follows a boy named Mason (Coltrane) as he progresses from age 6 to 18 and deals with the typical travails of childhood like his parents' divorce, bad stepparents, falling in love, finding his artistic voice, and fighting with his bratty older sister. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette co-star as Mason's parents. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi Cast: Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater, Elijah Smith Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
