Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 162: Thu Jun 12

Boyhood (Linklater, 2014): BFI Southbank, NFT1 6.30pm



Director Richard Linklater will be at the BFI to discuss his highly acclaimed new film.

Here is the BFI introduction:
Working with the same actors for over ten years from 2002 onwards, Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Before Sunrise, School of Rock) has created a unique and captivating film that observes the lives of Mason (Ellar Coltrane), his man-child father Mason Sr. (Ethan Hawke) and his single mother Olivia (Patricia Arquette) from Mason’s schooldays to his first experiences in college. This brave experimental approach in long form storytelling within a feature film results in a diverting picture of American childhood accompanied by a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's ‘Yellow’ to Arcade Fire's ‘Deep Blue’.

Here is the trailer.
