Filmed over 12 years with the same cast and written and directed by five-time Oscar® nominee Richard Linklater, Boyhood is a groundbreaking story as seen through the eyes of a boy named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally goes from a child to a young adult before our eyes. Universally embraced by critics and showered with awards since its release, the film stars Oscar and Golden Globe winner Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater and four-time Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke.
Boyhood received six Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Ethan Hawke, and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Patricia Arquette, which she won. The film was also nominated for five Golden Globe Awards earlier this year, and was honored with major wins including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actress for Arquette. The film and its actors and creative team were also the recipients of countless prestigious awards including the AFI Award for Movie of the Year, BAFTA Award for Best Film, the Audience Award at the Gotham Awards, the Independent Spirit Awards for Best Director and Best Supporting Female, and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role, among many others.
