Ster-kinekor would like to invite a few lucky readers to a special premiere screening of Boyhood (a film that currently has 99% on Rotten Tomatoes) at Cinema Nouveau V&A Waterfront, on Wednesday, 03 September, from 19:00.
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, director Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a ground-breaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes.
Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, _BOYHOOD_ charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has done before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a spectacular soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s _Yellow_ to Arcade Fire’s _ Deep Blue_.
BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
