First Trailer of 'Boyhood' Captures a Boy's Growth Over a Decade


Ellar Coltrane


Director Richard Linklater cast a six-year-old boy and followed his growth for the next 12 years.

The first look into Richard Linklater's long-running project "Boyhood" has been shared in a trailer. Newcomer Ellar Coltrane was cast as Mason in 2002 when he was only six years old and he continuously filmed the role for the next 12 years.

"Boyhood" follows a family, through the eyes of a young boy, who is dealing with divorce and the obligations and responsibilities that come with the territory. The film takes viewers on a journey through the experiences and changes of the lead character, in a way that we haven't quite seen before.

Linklater's daughter Lorelei Linklater was also cast in the film as Mason's sister Samantha and her growth was documented over a decade as well. Linklater would bring the cast together for a scene or two each year.

"Boyhood" will get limited release on July 11. It also stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette.
