Boyhood Before Your Eyes—A Film That Took 12 Years To Make (Flavorwire)

Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 8.43.37 AMActor Ellar Coltrane was seven years old when he began what would be a twelve-year process of portraying “Mason” in Richard Linklater’s new film, Boyhood. Rather than use lookalikes to tell the story of growing up, Linlater and his cast—including Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette—simply took their time and let nature take its course. The film’s new trailer is worth a look.
