Are you in Portland, Oregon and love great movies? Well, I have something special for you.
Richard Linklater is a director who loves to make unothodox movies that try to do something you might not have ever seen before. In each of his “Before Trilogy” films (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight) he told a story contained in a single day, with the same characters aging 9 years with each film, along with the same actors playing them.
His newest film is called Boyhood, and it takes this even further. Shot over a twelve year period, starting in 2002, Boyhood is a coming of age film that features the same actor (Ellar Coltrane) playing the same character as he grows up from age 6 to 18, and Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as his parents over those 12 years.
Boyhood is already getting serious accolades as one of the best, most original movies of the year. Seriously, it currently has 100% Freshness on Rotten Tomatoes. 100%!
