SIFF 2014 Centerpiece Gala: Boyhood
Features:Price: Sold out (standby tickets may be available)
Boyhood is unlike any movie to come before it. That type of praise may seem cliche, but in this case it's entirely apt. Richard Linklater spent 12 years shooting the film with the same cast of actors to show the story of a young boy becoming a young man. The story follows Mason Jr. (Ellar Coltrane) from age 6 to 18 and doesn't so much have a single through narrative as much as momentary snapshots from each year; a collection of formative memories that shaped Mason Jr. Boyhood is a modern epic without any of the grandiosity that word usually implies. It's a story of life that's naturally authentic in a peerless way.
