Review - Boyhood (2014)

Director: Richard Linklater

Starring: Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Lorelei Linklater

There has never been a film quite like Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. Wanting to make a coming of age film which truly captured the experience of childhood and adolescence, Linklater came up with a bold concept: he would cast a six year old boy, and over the next 12 years follow that character from the beginning of his school life to his leaving for college. 497 more words

Almost half a century has passed since the original fourteen British-born children appeared on film which was initially conceived as a project to show the distinctions among socioeconomic classes in 1960s England and how one’s standing in the hierarchy might shape a person’s future. 721 more words

Jackie has always been a firecracker. It is always a highlight when she is lit up by one of the director’s questions—often one that she feels is inappropriate because it is too personal like her level of experience when it comes to men in “21 Up.” When she claims that her youngest son is most like her and Michael Apted asks if that worries her, she goes after the filmmaker and it is a most welcome change of pace. 613 more words

A bit of hair loss, more noticeable extended waistlines, and less elastic facial skin have begun to show, but these classic attributes of aging do not make the subjects any less interesting. 633 more words

★★★★ / ★★★★

Perhaps the most important theme in “35 Up,” directed by Michael Apted, is its subjects having reached a point where most of them have become comfortable with their identities. 747 more words
