"BOYHOOD" Premieres on July 18th

My husband and I are pretty excited to go see the movie BOYHOOD which will be premiering in select theatres on July 18th. If you are in the Twin Cities Area, you can see this movie at the Landmark Lagoon Theatre in Uptown. Check out the trailer below and see what you think of it. I think it is amazing that this movie was filmed over 12 years! We get to watch this child grow up in a matter or hours and see just what his life was like.

SYNOPSIS: Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and

Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
