Trailer Reactions: Boyhood (2014)Richard Linklater Trailer Reactions Trailers
The trailer to Richard Linklater's newest and possibly his most iconic film will be Boyhood which is a film that's been in twelve years in the making! That's insane and quite a feat. It goes beyond the boundaries of cinema and becomes a groundbreaking time capsule of twelve years of a family's journey. It centers on Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his younger sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater) played by real-life daughter of Linklater and their emotional journey through childhood to adulthood. Their parents are played by Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette which will be interesting to see especially Arquette since we haven't seen her in mainstream cinema since Linklater's Fast Food Nation (2006). As you can see, I am on the verge of blubbering tears and this kind of work I absolutely adore by Linklater besides his greats like Dazed and Confused, Waking Life, Before Trilogy. I have always appreciated Linklater's work for stretching out the boundaries of what cinema could be especially when he experiments with real time. Boyhood comes out July 11!
