FILM at the Erie Art Museum returns September 17th with one of the year's most anticipated and critically-acclaimed films, BOYHOOD. This epic, 12 years in-the-making, coming-of-age drama from director Richard Linklater (the "Before" Trilogy, Dazed and Confused) is about the life of a young man from age 5 to age 18. Following this fantastic opener are a selection of films that will challenge how we look at ourselves, relationships to our universe and one another, and our futures while often pushing the very boundaries of the medium.
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. 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. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey. 164 min. Rated R. Written and Directed by Richard Linklater. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette.
Official Selection of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Berlin International Film Festival, SXSW Film Festival.
