Follow a Boy for 12 Years, But Not in a Creepy Way, in Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood' Trailer

April 25, 2014


With Boyhood, writer-director Richard Linklater has made a real-life study of growing up to rival both The Up Series and Family Matters' nine-year study of Steve Urkel's transformation into Stefan Urquelle. Shot across a dozen-year timespan, the film follows newcomer Ellar Coltrane as he progresses from first grade to high school graduation, a time-lapse of maturing from boy to guy who can buy us dirty magazines. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette play his parents, they too visibly falling victim to time's march and two cancelations of the television drama Medium.

Here's the trailer:
