Directed by Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater worked with his cast on and off over a staggering 12-year period to produce this highly anticipated coming-of-age drama. The film tracks Mason throughout his formative years, from his life as a six year-old-boy to adulthood, through a familiar whirl of family moves, controversies, faltering marriages, re-marriages, new schools, first loves, lost loves, good times, scary times and a constantly unfolding mix of heartbreak and wonder. Boyhood builds into a deeply personal experience of the incidents that shape us as we grow up and the ever-changing nature of our lives.
