BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through

by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before
our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's
parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha,
BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other
film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and
family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments
in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning
the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue.

and an ode to growing up and parenting.
