Boyhood

You know all those movies where someone takes a selfie in the same position once a year, then flows them together so you can watch someone grow up? Well the movie Boyhood takes this one amazing step further.

Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, A Scanner Darkly, to name a few) found the star, Ellar Coltrane, when he was 7 years old and visited him for a few days of shooting every year. The growing up that occurs in the movie is real. Unbelievable. Can’t wait to see it.
