Boyhood

CHICAGO – I remember when Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” was just a rare credit on IMDb, a project listed as “in production” for many years, while the director’s other completed work passed through.

Using the same actors over all those years, the result is the epic and philosophical “Boyhood.”
