Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 191: Fri Jul 11

Boyhood (Linklater, 2014): Rio Cinema, 1.15pm, 4.45pm & 8.15pm


For those of you unable to make the recent special BFI screening, the much anticipated Boyhood goes on general release today.

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 (and above) is the trailer.
