Richard Linklater’s Epic ‘Boyhood’ Readies for July 11 Release

Richard Linklater’s (Before Midnight, Bernie) ambitious feature Boyhood is hitting U.S. theaters on July 11. The project, which Linklater shot from 2002 to 2013, covers 12 years of a family’s life, with much of the narrative seen through the eyes of a wide-eyed boy named Mason (Ellar Contrane). The project, which stars frequent Linklater collaborator Ethan Hawke, Lorelei Linklater (the filmmaker’s daughter), and Patricia Arquette premiered to critical acclaim at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Boyhood (IFC Films)Linklater, who also produced the film, won the Silver Bear for Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival. The project clocks in at 164 minutes, and if the movie is half as good as this sterling IndieWire assessment, then we may be in for a good one. After all, Linklater’s continued link to our youthful desires and drives (Slacker, Dazed and Confused, The Waking Life, the Before films, Me and Orson Welles) originate from a completely inspired place, and one assumes Boyhood could be his crowning achievement.

In the clip below, Julie Delpy talks about what makes Richard Linklater such a unique filmmaker (her comments are in relation to Before Midnight’s opening sequence):
